Anonymous User Tracking Over Multiple Devices and Multichannel Attribution

Anonymous users visit websites daily, yet companies are forced to present non-personalized content to them. I developed a machine learning approach to track and identify anonymous users against demographics identifying the same user—with a high degree of confidence—on multiple devices and from any of the attribution channels. The system was self-validating using converted users' feedback to validate and correct the machine learning models daily.

Foggy Ubiquity's Language

https://github.com/foggyubiquity/language
Microservice dependency, configuration, and secret management were nonexistent at the time; a few isolated approaches existed, but nothing with permanence. Partnering with three universities and 35 industry publications, I created and open-sourced a universal microservice language using machine learning.

Containizen

https://hub.docker.com/r/foggyubiquity/containizen
These are maximum security, minimal footprint production base image and language containers. They're the most secure, CI/CD-compatible, and automatically updated optimized base container available. They are also used in several enterprises and publish a daily vulnerability CVE list.

Automated Registration DDoS Protection

This is a machine registration endpoint with no prior traffic. It should automatically register new machine users while simultaneously resisting port scanning and DDoS attacks and maintaining cost by not triggering auto-scale events for false traffic.

Fathomable

An operational and governance platform for Kubernetes, compatible with all major public cloud providers and bare metal servers. The technology used in this platform is still not mainstreamed by public cloud providers or Kubernetes distributions today. Ten seconds after the platform's machine-ready state, the first container synced and executed. It is also capable of reconstructing a failed datacenter within minutes.

Cyber Survival Denizen (Cyvizen)

An integration for digital identity by way of a Linux operating system that strives for equilibrium between anonymity or privacy and innovation or security while leveraging the ability of scorched earthing hardware. Cyvizen is in use by the government, IT professionals, and perpetual travelers.
