  1. 1. Extraordinary or Ordinary at Best? - An Empirical Study on the Application of Machine Learning Tools for Proxy Means Tests in Poverty Targeting

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Nicolas Leicht; Colja Maser; [2019]
    Keywords : Poverty targeting; Proxy means tests; Machine learning; Household surveys;

    Abstract : Proxy means tests are a widely used approach in development programs where the beneficiaries need to be determined through targeting. These tests apply a standard econometric method, ordinary least squares, to predict consumption levels using household characteristics as input variables. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deinterleaving pulse trains with DBSCAN and FART

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för systemteknik

    Author : Shad Mahmod; [2019]
    Keywords : DBSCAN; FART; Fuzzy; Adaptive; Resonance; Theory; Radar; Clustering; Deinterleaving; Machine Learning;

    Abstract : Studying radar pulses and looking for certain patterns is critical in order to assess the threat level of the environment around an antenna. In order to study the electromagnetic pulses emitted from a certain radar, one must first register and identify these pulses. READ MORE

  3. 3. Machine Learning for a Network-based Intrusion Detection System : An application using Zeek and the CICIDS2017 dataset

    University essay from KTH/Hälsoinformatik och logistik

    Author : Vilhelm Gustavsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Machine Learning; Flow-based traffic characterization; Intrusion Detection System IDS ; Zeek; Bro; CICIDS2017; Scikit-Learn; Maskininlärning; Flödesbaserad trafik-karaktärisering; Intrångsdetekteringssystem IDS ; Zeek; Bro; CICIDS2017; Scikit-Learn;

    Abstract : Cyber security is an emerging field in the IT-sector. As more devices are connected to the internet, the attack surface for hackers is steadily increasing. Network-based Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) can be used to detect malicious traffic in networks and Machine Learning is an up and coming approach for improving the detection rate. READ MORE
