Machine Learning for Security and Security for Machine Learning with Nicole Nichols - TWiML Talk #252
Today we’re joined by Nicole Nichols, a senior research scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Lab. Nicole joined me to discuss her recent presentation at GTC, which was titled “Machine Learning for Security, and Security for Machine Learning.” Our conversation explores the two use cases she presented, insider threat detection, and software fuzz testing. We discuss the effectiveness of standard and bidirectional RNN language models for detecting malicious activity within the Los Alamos National Laboratory cybersecurity dataset, the augmentation of software fuzzing techniques using deep learning, and light-based adversarial attacks on image classification systems. I’d love to hear your thoughts on these use cases! The complete show notes for this episode can be found at https://twimlai.com/talk/252. Visit twimlai.com/gtc19 for more from our GTC 2019 series.

Craig Weber: Interviewing for Conversational Capacity
Conversational Capacity is the ability to balance Candor and Curiosity under pressure. Critical elements to every entrepreneur and business leader who are building an organization. And yet this element is often overlooked in the hiring process. The great news is, it can be taught! Today’s Quote: "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." - George Bernard Shaw Show Guest: Craig Weber is the author of the best-selling book, Conversational Capacity: The Secret To Building Successful Teams That Perform When The Pressure Is On (McGraw-Hill, 2013) and Influence In Action: How to Build Your Conversational Capacity, Do Meaningful Work, and Make A Powerful Difference (McGraw-Hill, 2019). He is also the founder of The Weber Consulting Group, an alliance of experts committed to helping people build more resilient, healthy, and agile organizations. He helps people and teams dramatically improve their performance by treating dialogue as a discipline. He works with people and teams from such diverse organizations as Boeing, The Royal Bank of Canada, Kaiser-Permanente, PWC, The CDC, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and Los Alamos National Labs. He’s also working with legislators in an expanding list of states to help them engage in more constructive policy debate. Today we are going to cover: What is Conversational Capacity & Why is it important How do you interview someone and accurately evaluate their conversational capacity What our audience can implement today to hire & manage stronger What is conversational capacity? Definition 1: Constructive, learning-focused dialogue about difficult subjects, in challenging circumstances, and across tough boundaries.· Definition 2: The Sweet Spot. Where candor and curiosity are in balance. Open, honest, direct, yet open-minded, humble, and eager to learn. This is where the best learning occurs. Smart people working smart. Elements / Communication Traits When triggered: MIN Low candor. WIN Low curiosity. Need the ability to remain balanced. Everyone struggles, but often in very different ways. Why is it important? Defines teamwork. A team that can’t communicate when the going gets tough isn’t a team. Why good intentions are never enough: The gap between how people believe they behave bow they actually do. Work the issue on both sides: Hire for Attitude and personality (fit) and then build your team’s conversational capacity.o Hire right, then create a “Conversational Code of Conduct” – clear behavioral norms; formal or informal– to align team behavior with organizational strategy. How do you recognize and evaluate Evaluation of the process Well thought through the process Preparation emphasis- prep call beforehand Interviewing for Conversational Capacity Locate evidence of past experience Personality Assessment Behavioral Interview - questions Tell me about a time you had to give negative information up the chain to your boss. How did you handle it? What did you say? With a colleague? To someone who you managed? Tell me about a time you were really wrong about something or someone. What was your family dinner table like growing up? Mock Interview! People can learn to converse in a more disciplined, balanced manner. There are skills. To be good at working in the sweet spot, everyone needs to do some work. If someone is UNWILLING to do that work, well, let’s just say there are some people you’d prefer were working for your competition. CCOC Key Take Aways: conversational capacity needs to be on your management dashboard It affects every aspect of your organization’s performance from decision-making, to managing change, to running meetings, and implementing strategy. Hire the right people and then make sure you manage them in a way that allows them to bring their best work to your business.
