BSidesLV has ended
Thank you for joining us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We certainly hope you enjoy the conference. Here’s to Education, Collaboration, and Community!

Remember, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and you shouldn’t, either! To quote the old motto of another collaborative community, "We trick into learning with a laugh".

We wish you both laughter and learning - and lots of both!

As Big Data and Machine-Learning start to make strides into Infosec, most of the rest of us are still working in SQL databases, CSV files and glueing things together with python and javascript - while the folks with the Math degrees seem to be having all the fun with the data. Well, no more. We're information security practitioners : data is nice, but information is better - but how can we go from wikis, notes and whitepapers to processing the information we generate and doing something fun with that? Semantic Data systems open up machine learning and reasoning to the rest of us, with plain-language operations and natural language storage of information, not data. The Semantic Web has been around since the early days of the web, but is still misunderstood, and difficult to get into - so I've done all the hard work for you already - come and learn some practical tools, technologies and techniques for encoding the 'things we know' on top of the 'things we have' and show the world that you don't need a PhD in Applied Mathematics to come take part in the emerging world of information-drive information security.
