Business Finland has granted funding for research on the use of AI in anomaly detection to Rugged Tooling.

The goal of the research is to leverage Rugged Tooling’s advanced traffic visibility platform, PreScope® and AI algorithms from CAP Data to research the use of machine learning and AI in IP network anomaly detection. The aim is to use to the powerful processing of the PreScope to boost the abilities of CAP Data technology to create a self-adapting cyber security tool.

"It is exciting to bring new technologies to the world of IP network security management. This combination of AI and domain expertise is ideal for the project", says Tuomo Sipola, CEO of CAP.

“We are thrilled to work with CAP Data experts on the projects. We expect th...

Overfitting And Dropout In Neural Networks

Jan 23, 2018

tuomo-sipola

Antti Juvonen discusses how to overcome overfitting in deep learning. Check out Antti's data science blog where you can find more articles about deep learning and related topics.

In this post we are going to take a look at a problem called overfitting and it’s potential solution: dropout (or dropout layer). This is relevant for neural networks and deep learning.

Overfitting

First, let’s take a look at the problem that we are trying to get rid of: overfitting. Overfitting happens when the model adapts to training data too well. This usually means that we get excellent results with training data, but poor results with any new data. Overfitting is sometimes called overtraining in machine learni...

Ymon’s service center starts using innovative technology developed by the Finnish CAP Data Technologies in order to detect abnormal events in information security.

CAP Anomaly Spotter improves detection and response capabilites in order to find potential cybersecurity threats at a service center built by Ymon, a specialist company in networking and information security. The new tool allows Ymon’s situational awareness service to detect hidden abnormalities and to monitor information networks in unprecedented detail.

Normally, maintenance of situational awareness requires creation and management of a multitude of rules to detect the desired events. The new technology allows detection of security events using self-learning artificial intelligence without the need...

CAP has opened a very simple trial feature where you can get a hands-on touch on what CAP is all about. Click and run, no registration is needed nor disclosing anything about yourself before testing. You may test one of the data-sets we have made available as examples, or you may upload your own data and explore what happens. So, what sort of data can you test?

The primarily use-case is detecting unknown anomalies in server log files. CAP filters out events and lines that do not belong to normal operation. Moreover, you can test CAP with any line-based text file – it may be free text or a numeric excel file saved in .txt format or something that we have not yet figured out ourselves!

CAP is a Big Data analytics service that finds anomalies in the data. Anomaly is de...
