Between 2005 and 2011, Michael Brückner co-developed the content-based email spam filter of STRATO AG which processes several hundreds of million emails daily. In December 2011, he joined SoundCloud as Anti-Spam Engineer.
Michael is currently completing his PhD in machine learning at the University of Potsdam. His research focuses on supervised learning in adversarial environments where the construction of a prediction model establishes a game between a model builder and an adversarial data generator. He published and presented his findings at all major conferences on machine learning including the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), the international conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD), and the international conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS). He is reviewer of several conferences and journals on machine learning and computer security, such as ICML, KDD, NIPS, the Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Journal, the Transactions on Data Privacy Journal, the Conference on Collaboration, Electronic Messaging, Anti-Abuse and Spam.
