Take a 2-5 day short course emphasizing on highly specialized content.

 

We will be offering a short course on Multitarget/Multisensor Data Fusion Techniques on Jan 22-24.  This course describes sensor and data fusion methods that improve the probability of correct target detection, classification, identification, and state estimation. These techniques combine information from collocated or dispersed sensors that utilize either similar or different technologies to generate target signatures or imagery. Topics include the effects of the atmosphere and countermeasures on millimeter-wave and infrared sensors to illustrate how the use of different phenomenology-based sensors enhances a data fusion system.

This exclusive, complimentary event will give attendees a unique, hands on opportunity to learn more about our big data platform and technologies directly from the development experts.  Three reasons you should invite you clients to come to this:

1. It is free
2. It’s run by IBM Developers and is a technical event. No marketing pitch. Perfect for an IT audience that just wants to talk with other technical types. 
3. Hands on. Half the day will be hands on labs where your customers can start using BigInsights & Streams. 

Abstract
Experience IBM’s enterprise-class big data platform that allows you to address the full spectrum of big data business challenges. The morning will include interactive discussions and live demonstrations of big data at rest and big data in motion.  Demos may include social media and log analytics, and hands on with Hadoop scripting and text analytics with guidance from development experts. This is a unique opportunity to develop skills and learn about exciting technologies and techniques that you can immediately take back to your organization

This is an excellent opportunity to help build visibility and educate these influencers on the unique value of the IBM big data platform strategy.  

Additional information can be found at the Los Angeles Meetup group.  Joining the Meetup group can allow attendees to stay in touch with announcements/technologies coming in the future:  http://www.meetup.com/Big-Data-Developers-in-Los-Angeles/.  In order to guarantee a seat at the event, attendees must register at: http://ibm.co/1bhS1pW

Speaker: Daniel Manson, Ph.D. Professor, Cal Poly CPP Pomona CA

Abstract Title: 5,000 + 5,000 by 2020 – The National Cybersecurity Sports Federation

Abstract: The National Science Foundation has funded a proposal to create The National Cybersecurity Sports Federation (NCSF). The primary objective of this proposal is to bring together the community of cybersecurity academic, industry and government leaders in cybersecurity competitions, to induce shared goals and values, and to create an umbrella organization for a national sport of cybersecurity. This project will enable middle schools, high schools, colleges and professionals to align cyber competitions with middle, secondary, and career/technical institutions, in sync with industry and government cybersecurity needs. We believe under the leadership of the NCSF thousands for young people will follow a path that enables 5,000 hours of hands-on cybersecurity training before they attend college and 5,000 hours during college. This talk will present the NCSF vision and discuss how the Cal Poly Team has been involved over the past few years, plus their Team results. About th!
e Speaker Dan Manson, CISSP, is a Professor at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona). Dr. Manson teaches Information Systems Auditing, Internet Security and Computer Forensics in the College of Business Administration Computer Information Systems undergraduate and Master of Science in Information Systems Auditing programs.

Dr. Manson led the effort for Cal Poly Pomona to be designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education in 2005 and again in 2008. Dr. Manson is in charge of the Western Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition and California Cyber Challenge as part of the United States Cyber Challenge. Dan is Principal Investigator on a new NSF grant to create a National Cybersecurity Sports Federation. Dan has been co-Principal Investigator on three National S!
