Speech Title: Machine Learning for
Detecting Internet Traffic Anomalies
Abstract: Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) enables the Internet data routing. BGP anomalies may affect the Internet connectivity and cause routing disconnections, route flaps, and oscillations. Hence, detection of anomalous BGP routing dynamics is a topic of great interest in cybersecurity. Various anomaly and intrusion detection approaches based on machine learning have been employed to analyze BGP update messages collected from RIPE and Route Views collection sites. Survey of supervised and semi-supervised machine learning algorithms for detecting BGP anomalies and intrusions is presented. Deep learning, broad learning, gradient boosting decision tree, and reservoir computing algorithms are evaluated by developing models based on collected datasets that contain Internet worms, power outages, and ransomware events.

Speech Title: LSI Testing: A Core
Technology to a Successful Semiconductor Industry
Abstract: The semiconductor industry is exposed to shrinking feature sizes, growing circuit complexity, increasing clock speeds, and decreasing power supply voltages. In addition to significant impact on LSI design and manufacturing, these factors also have a profound impact on LSI testing, a complex process for separating defective chips from defect-free ones. The major challenges to LSI testing are low test quality, high test cost, and excessive test power. These challenges have led to new chances of innovations in LSI testing, characterized by cell-aware test generation, test compression, and power-aware testing. This talk will review these challenges and chances. Furthermore, this talk will reveal the role of LSI testing in the semiconductor business chain, so as to explain why LSI testing is a core technology to a successful semiconductor industry.
