Burst detection-based selective classifier resetting. (2021)
Journal Article
WARES, S., ISAACS, J. and ELYAN, E. 2021. Burst detection-based selective classifier resetting. Journal of information and knowledge management [online], 20(2), article 2150027. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1142/S0219649221500271

Concept drift detection algorithms have historically been faithful to the aged architecture of forcefully resetting the base classifiers for each detected drift. This approach prevents underlying classifiers becoming outdated as the distribution of a... Read More about Burst detection-based selective classifier resetting..

Journal Article
WARES, S., ISAACS, J. and ELYAN, E. 2019. Data stream mining: methods and challenges for handling concept drift. SN applied sciences [online], 1(11), article ID 1412. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s42452-019-1433-0

Mining and analysing streaming data is crucial for many applications, and this area of research has gained extensive attention over the past decade. However, there are several inherent problems that continue to challenge the hardware and the state-of... Read More about Data stream mining: methods and challenges for handling concept drift..

Evaluating awareness and perception of botnet activity within consumer Internet-of-Things (IoT) networks. (2019)
Journal Article
MCDERMOTT, C.D., ISAACS, J.P. and PETROVSKI, A.V. 2019. Evaluating awareness and perception of botnet activity within consumer Internet-of-Things (IoT) networks. Informatics [online], 6(1), article 8. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/informatics6010008

The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), and demand for low-cost, easy-to-deploy devices, has led to the production of swathes of insecure Internet-connected devices. Many can be exploited and leveraged to perform large-scale attacks on the Intern...
