A PhD student doing research in training NNs in dynamic environments. Atm I'm especially interested in dynamically adjusting architectures, as well as everything else that's fresh and cooking.

Thanks a lot! The first paper looks like an answer I was looking for.

Thanks for your answer. I asked the question on this forum because I wanted answers from people proficient in security (not in AI). I think I got what I wanted. The rest is up to me :)

You're not being objective, Andrew. Obviously, a NN with 3 inputs and an output is just as likely to "work" as a single neuron is likely to approximate the XOR function. However, the field of NN research is vast and versatile, and - surprise! - it includes a thing called NN ensemble (I am now referring to your idea of interconnecting NNs). I know there is no out-of-the-box solution, for the mere reason that there never is an out-of-the-box solution, whenever the problem to be solved is harder than multiplying 2 by 2. But I am a researcher. I am looking for problems which haven't been solved :)

Awesome! Thanks a lot. I'm just trying to figure out how much of a trodden ground the idea itself is. Apparently, the idea is old, but a stable, universally accepted solution is still pending. Now, taking into account the recent breakthrough in.... Wait, I shouldn't have said that :P

Thanks! I do my humble bit of research in ML, I know its limitations ;) I guess it will be correct to assume the intrusion detection problem hasn't been solved with ML techniques yet. Interesting.

The closest thing I found is this: roberto.perdisci.com/projects/mcpad, but it seems to be an academic project - I can't tell how usable the thing is. Got to try it out. And yet... I like the idea of getting AI involved.
