Campfire Talk: How to Create Your Own AI Platform – Peter Halberg

October 20 @ 9:40 am

Presented by: Peter Halberg

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking the world by storm. There seem to be so many new platforms popping up daily. AI platforms for red and blue teams already exist, but are they custom tailored to your organization’s environment? If not, then maybe it’s time to create your own.

This talk will cover the basics of creating your own AI platform using TensorFlow before adversaries have the advantage in the AI sphere. Topics covered will be use and benefits of using TensorFlow, collecting training data, then cleaning the collected training data, creating a TensorFlow .H5 file, creating a model .H5 file, and finally, we will go over how to put everything together into a basic working platform using a CLI. We will also cover working with additional .H5 files to test data sets to add to the model file. A pre-made AI platform will be demonstrated if time and technology restraints allow for it.

If you are interested in learning about building your own AI platforms and learning the basic steps and components involved in creating your own. This talk is for you.

Peter Halberg is a cyber security researcher located in Minneapolis with a curious mind that ranges from security testing to tinkering with hardware such as Arduino. He has been in the technology field for over 14 years.
After High School, Peter joined the Army as a Counterintelligence Agent, and is an Afghanistan Veteran. Once his time in the Army was complete, he went to school for computers and networking, which led to him becoming a systems administrator. After a few years working in the sysadmin field, Peter switched over to cybersecurity where he has been a security researcher for over 4 years.
Peter’s current passion projects are Artificial Intelligence, file permissions abuse, web scraping, and writing his own C2 framework. His latest fun project was creating a script to automating making GTP Chat queries using speech to text.
When Peter is not doing research, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, playing pool, learning how to not crash in Microsoft Flight Simulator, and spending time outdoors doing many different activities.
