You are a ghost driving a meat covered skeleton made from stardust riding a rock floating through space. Fear nothing.

This is Sailik. After being born and raised in Bengal for a substantial amount of time, he developed a taste for life-long learning, thinking, coding, eating (lots of food), reading, listening to good music and photography. At present, he is a Ph.D. student at Arizona State University and works with [Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/). His research interests lie in developing machine learning and game theoritiec techniques for cybersecurity systems and devising methods to help secure machine learning systems. Being a part of the Yochan Lab, he also developed interest in Automated Planning and works on building Automated Planning Assistants for human-in-the-loop planning scenario. He likes to talk (a lot) and spends a lot of time doing so (sometimes on random topics completely unrelated to his research). He is often self-critical about his shortcomings and feels correcting them will help him to become a better person. In case you are interested to know what his lab is upto, do check the Yochan lab [homepage](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/yochan/). Feel free to [reach out to him](#contact) for any queries (or say a 'hi'). You can download a copy of his CV [here](files/CV_sailiks.pdf). Lastly, since he gets asked this many times, the pronunciation of his name (Sailik) is `Sho-e-lik` in his native language, Bengali. Its means the aesthetic quality of any work. ## Education - Ph.D. student (Computer Science), **Arizona State University** (Fall 2015) - Bachelors in Engineering (Computer Science and Engineering), **Jadavpur University**, Calcutta (2009-13) - Alumnus of **St. Xavier's Collegiate School**, Calcutta (2009) ## Research ### 2018 **MTDeep - Boosting the Security of Deep Neural Nets Against Adversarial Attacks with Moving Target Defense** *Sailik Sengupta, Tathagata Chakraborti, Subbarao Kambhampati* AAAI'18 Workshop on Engineering Dependable and Secure Machine Learning Systems \[[pdf](https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.07213)\] **An Investigation of Bounded Misclassification for Operational Security of Deep Neural Networks** *Sailik Sengupta, Andrew Dudley, Tathagata Chakraborti, Subbarao Kambhampati* AAAI'18 Workshop on Engineering Dependable and Secure Machine Learning Systems ------------ ### 2017 **RADAR - A Proactive Decision Support System for Human-in-the-Loop Planning** *Sailik Sengupta, Tathagata Chakraborti, Sarath Sreedharan, Satya Gautam Vadlamudi, Subbarao Kambhampati* AAAI Fall Symposium on Human-Agent Groups, 2017 ICAPS, 2017 System Demo (Was also presented at the UISP Workshop @ ICAPS, 2017) \[[pdf](https://aaai.org/ocs/index.php/FSS/FSS17/paper/view/16028)\] \[[slides](https://www.dropbox.com/s/k5mxrv8dk0niepu/UISP_final.pptx?dl=0)\] \[[demo](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5lYDnSh3B8)\] **A Game Theoretic Approach to Strategy Generation for Moving Target Defense in Web Applications** *Sailik Sengupta, Satya Gautam Vadlamudi, Subbarao Kambhampati, Adam Doup&eacute;, Ziming Zhao, Marthony Taguinod, Gail-Joon Ahn* AAMAS, 2017 (Also presented at ADVERSE workshop @ AAMAS, 2017) \[[pdf](http://rakaposhi.eas.asu.edu/AAMAS-2017-MTD.pdf)\] \[[slides](https://www.dropbox.com/s/rcn32127584np6e/AAMAS-Session1D.pdf?dl=0)\] \[[video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03rydUG2lBU)\] **Moving Target Defense: A Symbiotic Framework for AI &amp; Security** Sailik Sengupta AAMAS (DC), 2017 \[[pdf](http://www.aamas2017.org/proceedings/pdfs/p1861.pdf)\] \[[slides](https://www.dropbox.com/s/dad6q3qdjuxpks5/DC.pdf?dl=0)\] -------------- ### 2016 **Compliant Conditions for Polynomial Time Approximation of Operator Counts** *Tathagata Chakraborti, Sarath Sreedharan, Sailik Sengupta, T.
