Bio

Leon Reznik is a Professor of Computer Science (primary affiliation) and Computing Security (secondary affiliation) at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He is an author of the textbook 'Fuzzy Controllers' (Elsevier-Butterworth-Heinemann, Oxford, 1997) and an editor of 'Fuzzy System Design: Social and Engineering Applications' (Physica Verlag, 1998), 'Soft Computing in Measurement and Information Acquisition' (Springer, 2003), 'Advancing Computing and Information Sciences' (Cary Graphic Arts Press, 2005). Dr. Reznik's research concentrates on study and development of intelligent computing systems for control, power engineering and computer networks, sensor networks and systems as well as cybersecurity. His current research interests include intelligent data analytics; data quality and security evaluation and assurance; intelligent intrusion detection in cyber-physical systems; cognitive sensor networks and systems.

Currently Teaching

CSCI-532
3 Credits
The course will introduce students to the application of intelligent methodologies in computer security and information assurance systems design. It will review different application areas such as intrusion detection and monitoring systems, access control and biological authentication, firewall structure and design. The students will be required to implement a course project on design of a particular security tool with an application of an artificial intelligence methodology and to undertake its performance analysis.
CSCI-788
3 Credits
Project capstone of the master's degree program. Students select from a set of possible projects and confirm that they have a project adviser. Students enroll in a required colloquium component that meets weekly, during which they present information, related to their projects. Projects culminate with delivery of a final report and participation in a poster session open to the public.

CSCI-630
3 Credits
An introduction to the theories and algorithms used to create artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Topics include search algorithms, logic, planning, machine learning, and applications from areas such as computer vision, robotics, and natural language processing. Programming assignments and oral/written summaries of research papers are required.
ENGT-510
0 Credits
This faculty directed undergraduate research experience involves student(s) in a research project. Under the guidance of CET faculty and using one or a variety of methods, students will collect data and contribute to problem solving within a research environment. As an undergraduate research experience, emphasis is on the process of scientific research, including problem definition, formulating a research plan, data collection/analysis and interpretation based on existing research. Department permission is required.
