I had a wonderful time at the conferences last week and that seems to have been a feeling shared by all who attended them this year.
The overall response to the project was amazing, and beyond what we would have imagined at first. Both BlackHat and DefCon had their rooms full of people, and after the first 15 or so minutes, it was difficult getting in.
As a friend of mine put it, it is almost unreal that a talk about defending (not attacking or hacking) with so much math in it would be standing room only in a Sunday afternoon in DefCon.
At BSidesLV, there was a very seasoned and experienced audience who could connect with the material and the opportunities machine learning can bring to our industry, which led to some interesting discussions after the end of the presentation.
