SECRET visits University of Waikato

Last month SECRET started a collaboration with researchers from the University of Waikato, located in Hamilton, New Zealand. The University of Waikato is famous for developing open-source machine learning frameworks, such as Weka, MOA, and scikit-multiflow. The main objective of this collaboration is to develop novel machine learning solutions that Read more…


Tamy Beppler, a SECRET researcher, has been presenting her research in the 2019 Information Security Conference. Tamy investigated the use of file textutres for malware families’ classification. Interested in taking a look on her results? Check this link.


SBSEG proceeded with a great presentation of Fabricio Ceschin, a SECRET member, about the use of machine learning techniques for security purposes. Fabricio discussed common challenges and pitfalls when designing ML experiments. Check all details on github.

Google Latin America Award

Among many initiatives, Google awards research work in promising fields developed in Latin America. Fabricio’s work was awarded in the machine learning category and proposed detecting concept drift in malware classifier. Concept drift is the name of the phenomenon which causes classifier’s accuracy to be reduced due to changes in Read more…
