Yannis Labrou is a Distinguished Engineer with the Strategy and Analytics team where he
- Supports the Executive Leadership’s decision making through (Big) Data Analysis.
- Innovates through Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning & Deep Learning).
- Supports Technology Operations and Security through (Big) Data Analysis.

Yannis brings to Verisign more than 20 years of experience in conceiving, creating and bringing to fruition innovations; combining thinking big with laboring through the pains of materializing ideas. He has done so in an academic environment, at a start-up company, while conducting government-and DoD/DARPA-sponsored research, and for a global Fortune 200 company.

Yannis was previously a senior researcher at Fujitsu Laboratories of America (FLA), a unit of the global R&D arm of Fujitsu Ltd., where he was responsible for all aspects of the process of creating and commercializing innovation within the group of researchers and developers that he managed, in the application areas of ubiquitous computing, mobile payments, security and big data search.

Before Fujitsu, Yannis served as director of technology and member of the executive staff of PowerMarket, an enterprise application software (supply chain), VC-funded, start-up company. As one of the earliest employees at PowerMarket, he was engaged in all technology and product-related activities, leading the technology roadmap, intellectual property and technology partnerships, collaborations and acquisitions efforts.

Prior to PowerMarket, Yannis was a research assistant professor at the CSEE Dept. at UMBC, where he taught, participated in standardization efforts and conducted research in the areas of artificial intelligence, software agents, information retrieval, enterprise software and supply chain management.

While still in graduate school he interned at IBM’s TJ Watson Research Center.

Yannis received his Ph.D. in computer science from UMBC, where his research focused on software agents, and a diploma in physics from the University of Athens. He has authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications, with more than 10,000 citations and he has been awarded 28 patents from the USPTO. His current focus is data through the entire lifecycle, from generation to monetization, using big and small data analysis and AI tools such as Machine Learning and Deep Learning.

Observations on Resolver Behavior During DNS Outages

When an outage affects a component of the internet infrastructure, there can often be downstream ripple effects affecting other components or services, either directly or indirectly. We would like to share our observations of this impact in the case of two recent such outages, measured at various levels of the DNS hierarchy, and discuss the resultant increase in query volume due to the behavior of recursive resolvers. more
