Introduction to cyberdeception by Neil C Rowe( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an introduction to both offensive and defensive techniques of cyberdeception. Unlike most books on cyberdeception, this book focuses on methods rather than detection. It treats cyberdeception techniques that are current, novel, and practical, and that go well beyond traditional honeypots. It contains features friendly for classroom use: (1) minimal use of programming details and mathematics, (2) modular chapters that can be covered in many orders, (3) exercises with each chapter, and (4) an extensive reference list. Cyberattacks have grown serious enough that understanding and using deception is essential to safe operation in cyberspace. The deception techniques covered are impersonation, delays, fakes, camouflage, false excuses, and social engineering. Special attention is devoted to cyberdeception in industrial control systems and within operating systems. This material is supported by a detailed discussion of how to plan deceptions and calculate their detectability and effectiveness. Some of the chapters provide further technical details of specific deception techniques and their application. Cyberdeception can be conducted ethically and efficiently when necessary by following a few basic principles. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students, as well as computer professionals learning on their own. It will be especially useful for anyone who helps run important and essential computer systems such as critical-infrastructure and military systems.

Rule-based statistical calculations on a database abstract by Neil C Rowe( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The size of data sets subjected to statistical analysis is increasing as computer technology develops. Quick estimates of statistics rather than exact values are becoming increasingly important to analysts. The authors proposes a new technique for estimating statistics on a database, a top-down alternative to the bottom-up method of sampling. This approach precomputes a set of general-purpose statistics on the database, a database abstract, and then uses a large set of inference rules to make bounded estimates of other, arbitrary statistics requested by users. The inference rules form a new example of an artificial-intelligence expert system. There are several important advantages of this approach over sampling methods, as is demonstrated in part by detailed experimental comparisons for two quite different data bases. (Author)

Exploiting captions in retrieval of multimedia data by Neil C Rowe( )

1 edition published in 1992 in Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Descriptive natural-language captions can help organize multimedia data. We described our MARIE system that interprets English queries directing the fetch of media objects. it is novel in the extent to which it exploits previously interpreted and indexed English captions for the media objects. Our routine filtering of queries through descriptively-complex captions (as opposed to keyword lists) before retrieving data can actually improve retrieval speed, as media data are often bulky and time consuming to retrieve, difficult upon which to perform content analysis, and even small improvements to query prevision can often pay off. Handling the English of captions and queries about them is not as difficult as it might seems, as the matching does not require deep understanding, just a comprehensive type hierarchy for caption concepts. An important innovation of MARIE is supercaptions describing sets of captions, which can minimize caption redundancy. Databases, Natural-language, Captions, Multimedia

Efficient caption-based retrieval of multimedia information by Neil C Rowe( )

1 edition published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We describe MARIE-1 and MARIE-2, information retrieval systems for multimedia data. They exploit captions on the data and perform natural-language processing of them and English retrieval requests. Some content analysis of the data is also Performed to obtain additional descriptive information. The key to getting this approach to work is sufficient fast processing. We achieve this by decomposing the problem into information filters and applying a new theory of optimal information filtering which we have developed

Inferring depictions in natural-language captions for efficient access to picture data by Neil C Rowe( )

1 edition published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multimedia data can require significant examination time to find desired features ("content analysis"). An alternative is using natural-language captions to describe the data, and matching captions to English queries. But it is hard to include everything in the caption of a complicated datum, so significant content analysis may still seem required. We discuss linguistic clues in captions, both syntactic and semantic, that can simplify or eliminate content analysis. We introduce the notion of concept depiction and rules for depiction inference. Our approach is implemented in an expert system which demonstrated significant increases in recall in experiments

Three papers on rule-based estimation of statistics on databases by Neil C Rowe( Book )

6 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report contains three papers on rule-based estimation of statistics on a database: an overview, followed by two more specialized papers. The first, Rule-based Statistical Calculations on a Database Abstract, is addressed to a general database audience. The second, Inheritance of Statistical Properties, is addressed to an artificial intelligence audience, the third, Diophantine Compromise of a Statistical Database, is addressed to an audience of database theorists
Modelling degrees of item interest for a general database query system by Neil C Rowe( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many databases support decision-making. Often this means choices between alternatives according to partly subjective or conflicting criteria. Database query languages are generally designed for precise, logical specification of the data of interest, and tend to be awkward in the aforementioned circumstances. Information retrieval research suggests several solutions, but there are obstacles to generalizing these ideas to most databases. To address this problem the authors propose a methodology for automatically deriving and monitoring degrees of interest among alternatives for a user of a database system. This includes a decision theory model of the value of information to the user, and inference mechanisms, based in part on ideas from artificial intelligence, that can tune the model to observed user behavior. This theory has important applications to improving efficiency and cooperativeness of the interface between a decision-maker and a database system. (Author)
