About the Authors
Richard Yang (University of Wyoming) and Victor Kang (University of Michigan) are computer science research students working under Professor Zohdy. Our field of research deals with cyber security, specifically the detection of malicious spyware. We are aiming to apply both supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms to recognize and classify spyware, with the ultimate goal of improving detection rates among anti-spyware software.
