Pair the ML technique(s) to the problem stated. Note, there may be more than one possible
technique for some of the questions. After you pair the technique(s), describe in 5-7 sentences how
you would go about creating the model, the dataset and training it. Each question is worth 15
points. These are thought provoking questions. Please recognize that quick, not well-thought out
responses will be the road to perdition.
1. You need to isolate APT traffic on an IDS, but you need the IDS to function like an IPS, and
this IPS must make guesses at which traffic is APT based and categorize it as such.
2. You need to determine threat levels of possible software upgrades on a system. The System
controls Metro Rail trains. You need the system to automatically determine which patches
and which patching procedure combinations are the riskiest.
3. You need to process Chinese language texts, but you need the system you are working on to
better estimate the semantic meaning of the sentences.
4. Using the system from #3, you now need to categorize speech into “truth” and
5. Create a system that will detect Denial of Service attacks before they happen. Assume you
have access to the core routing infrastructure when designing this system.
6. You need to create a real-time driving system that differentiates between trees and
7. You need to create a system that uses posterior probabilities to make future decisions.
You may use any resource you want to answer the questions here, and please cite where necessary
using APA format. INLINE citations are NOT necessary for this
