Life after the Udacity Deep Learning Nanodegree

Background on Myself

On August 30th, 2018, I graduated from the Udacity Deep Learning Nanodegree. Unlike many others to go through the program, I do not have a Computer Science or Engineering degree. In fact, I don’t have any graduate or undergraduate degree. My highest form of a completed college education is an Associate of Science in Electronics Technology from a community college, which basically went into basic small electronic theory like modulation, simple circuits, and circuit board components. My professional background is in Network Engineering and Cybersecurity.

Post-Graduation

Suddenly, I found myself with all these new skills and tools at my disposal, and every problem began to look like something that had to be addressed with some kind of neural network architecture.

The Future is Bright

In future posts, I’ll be documenting my contributions to the open-source cybersecurity community. I have already begun building and testing open frameworks for Network and Host-based Intrusion Detection using LSTMs and plan on advancing free anti-viruses with GAN inspired detection methods, and Deep Reinforcement Learning based active defense agents.
