Consolidated Edison Company of New York (2005-2007)

Participants: Marta Arias (work done while M. A. was at the Center for Computational Learning Systems).

The project consisted in the development and implementation of a system capable of ranking feeders according to their likelihood of failure in real-time. The system used a series of machine learning techniques ranging from boosting to online learning, and required a significant amount of software engineering. For more information on the project, check out the following publications and this link:

This project was partly supported by a research contract from Consolidated Edison Company of New York.


TISSAT (2005-2006)

Participants: Gemma Garriga, José L. Balcázar.

The project consisted in the developtment of an integrated system to process in real time a huge incoming stream of alerts produced by current intrusion detection systems. A key component of this system includes an unsupervised clustering algorithm that combines a temporal sliding window, entropy tests, and expert rules to track the on-the-fly evolution of alert groups. More information can be found at this link.

This project was partly supported by a PROFIT grant from the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación of Spain.
