Samuel M. Smith, PhD
The Security Oracle’s (TSO’s) Chief Technology Advisor and a ground floor owner is Dr. Samuel M. Smith; who received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Brigham Young University in 1991. Dr. Smith invested a decade in academia at Florida Atlantic University, attaining full professor status. He has over 100 refereed publications in the areas of automated reasoning. Dr. Smith and TSO’s CEO Charles L. Butler, Jr. developed what, in retrospect, may be viewed as a first in master planning for a Smart/Safe and Survivable “City” in their visionary work with Miami Dade County in 2005-2006.
Dr. Smith’s forte is to understand and to solve problems both technical and business using a holistic systems design approach. He has developed expertise in systems using machine intelligence (aka, artificial intelligence and automated reasoning) to build very cost efficient and highly performant active physical protection systems, e.g., TSO’s Remotely Controlled Active Defense and Denial System (RCADS®).
Beginning in 2014, Dr. Samuel Smith collaborated with The Security Oracle’s technology team in engineering a system of systems that has moved the old best practice of “Detect, Delay and Respond” to “Detect, Engage and Neutralize”.
He also developed an open source elliptic curve based end-to-end encrypted and authenticated protocol for reliable asynchronous event transport (RAET).
