10/14/20051 Dissertation Proposal Negative selection algorithms: from the thymus to V-detector Zhou Ji, advised by Prof. Dasgupta
2 Outline Background of the area Major contributions of current work Description of the algorithm Demonstration of the software Experimental results Work to do next
background3 Background AIS (Artificial Immune Systems) – only about 10 years history Negative selection (development of T cells) Immune network theory (how B cells and antibodies interact with each other) Clonal selection (how a pool of B cells, especially, memory cells are developed) New inspirations from immunology: danger theory, germinal center, etc. Negative selection algorithms The earliest and most widely used AIS.
background4 Biological metaphor of negative selection How T cells mature in the thymus: The cell are diversified. Those that recognize self are eliminated. The rest are used to recognize nonself.
background5 The idea of negative selection algorithms (NSA) The problem to deal with: anomaly detection (or one-class classification) Detector set random generation: maintain diversity censoring: eliminating those that match self samples The concept of feature space and detectors
background6 Outline of a typical NSA Generation of detector set Anomaly detection: (classification of incoming data items)
background7 Family of NSA Types of works about NSA Applications: solving real world problems by using a typical version or adapting for specific applications Improving NSA of new detector scheme and generation method and analyzing existing methods. Works are data representation specific, mostly binary representation. Establishment of framework for binary representation to include various matching rules; discussion on uniqueness and usefulness of NSA; introduction of new concepts. What defines a negative selection algorithm? Representation in negative space One-class learning Usage of detector set
background8 Major issues in NSA Number of detectors Affecting the efficiency of generation and detection Detector coverage Affecting the accuracy detection Generation mechanisms Affecting the efficiency of generation and the quality of resulted detectors Matching rules – generalization How to interpret the training data depending on the feature space and representation scheme Issues that are not NSA specific Difficulty of one-class classification Curse of dimensionality
contribution9 V-detector: work done for the proposed dissertation to deal with the issues in NSA V-detector is a new negative selection algorithm. It embraces a series of related works to develop a more efficient and more reliable algorithm. It has its unique process to generate detectors and determine coverage.
contribution10 V-detectors major features Variable-sized detectors Statistical confidence in detector coverage Boundary-aware algorithm Extensibility
contribution11 Variable sized detectors in V-detector method are maximized detector Unanswered question: what is the self space? traditional detectors: constant size V-detector: maximized size
contribution12 Why is the idea of variable sized detectors novel? The rational of constant size: a uniform matching threshold Detectors of variable size exist in some negative selection algorithms as a different mechanism Allowing multiple or evolving size to optimize the coverage – limited by the concern of overlap Variable size as part of random property of detectors/candidates V-detector uses variable sized detectors to maximize the coverage with limited number of detectors Size is decided on by the training data Large nonself region is covered easily Small detectors cover holes Overlap is not an issue in V-detector
contribution13 Statistical estimate of detector coverage Exiting works: estimate necessary number of detectors – no direct relationship between the estimate and the actual detector set obtained. Novelty of V-detector: Evaluate the coverage of the actual detector set Statistical inference is used as an integrated components of the detector generation algorithm, not to estimate coverage of finished detector set.
contribution14 Basic idea leading to the new estimation mechanism Random points are taken as detector candidates. The probability that a random point falls on covered region (some exiting detectors) reflects the portion that is covered -- similar to the idea of Monte Carlo integral. Proportion of covered nonself space = probability of a sample point to be a covered point. (the points on self region not counted) When more nonself space has been covered, it becomes less likely that a sample point to be an uncovered one. In other words, we need try more random point to find a uncovered one - one that can be used to make a detector.
contribution15 Statistics involved Central limit theory: sample statistic follows normal distribution Using sample statistic to population parameter In our application, use proportion of covered random points to estimate the actual proportion of covered area Point estimate versus confidence interval Estimate with confidence interval versus hypothesis testing Proportion that is close to 100% will make the assumption of central limit theory invalid – not normal distribution. Purpose of terminating the detector generation proportion 01
16 Hypothesis testing Identifying null hypothesis/alternative hypothesis. Type I error: falsely reject null hypothesis Type II error: falsely accept null hypothesis The null hypothesis is the statement that wed rather take as true if there is not strong enough evidence showing otherwise. In other words, we consider type I error more costly. In term of coverage estimate, we consider falsely inadequate coverage is more costly. So the null hypothesis is: the current coverage is below the target coverage. Choose significant level: maximum probability we are willing to accept in making Type I Error. Collect sample and compute its statistic, in this case, the proportion. Calculate z score from proportion an compare with z If z is larger, we can reject null hypothesis and claim adequate coverage with confidence
17 Boundary-aware algorithm versus point-wise interpretation A new concept in negative selection algorithm Previous works of NSA Matching threshold is used as mechanism to control the extent of generalization However, each self sample is used individually. The continuous area represented by a group of sample is not captured. (point-wise interpretation) More specificity Relatively more aggressive to detect anomaly More generalization The real boundary is Extended. Desired interpretation: The area represented by The group of points
contribution18 Boundary–aware: using the training points as a collection Boundary-aware algorithm A clustering mechanism though represented in negative space The training data are used as a collection instead individually. Positive selection cannot do the same thing
contribution19 V-detector is more than a real-valued negative selection algorithm V-detector can be implemented for any data representation and distance measure. Usually negative selection algorithms were designed with specific data representation and distance measure. The features we just introduced are not limited by representation scheme or generation mechanism. (as long as we have a distance measure and a threshold to decide matching)

40 Questions and comments? Thank you!
41 What is matching rule? When a sample and a detector are considered matching. Matching rule plays an important role in negative selection algorithm. It largely depends on the data representation.
42 In real-valued representation, detector can be visualized as hyper-sphere. Candidate 1: thrown-away; candidate 2: made a detector. Match or not match?
