Background

Dr. Duhainy previously worked at Avnet Electronics Marketing and the Advanced Threat Analysis Center at Northrop Grumman Corporation. He has developed a modified reinforcement learning algorithm that enhances the effectiveness of neural networks, including techniques that use advanced neural networks to detect network-based attacks. His work also has included the use of adaptive self-organizing software agents that are designed to actively protect the computer network from attack. Dr. Duhainy also has served as a professor at ITT Technical Institute.
