The focus of the Center is to develop a rigorous understanding of the vulnerabilities inherent to machine learning, and to develop the tools, metrics, and methods to mitigate them.
Background. Recent advances in machine learning (ML) have vastly improved computational reasoning over complex domains. From video and text classification, to complex data analysis, machine learning is constantly finding new applications. Yet, when machine learning models are exposed to adversarial behavior, the systems built upon them can be fooled, evaded, and misled in ways that can have profound security implications. As more critical systems employ ML—from financial systems to self-driving cars to network monitoring tools—it is vitally important that we develop the rigorous scientific techniques needed to make machine learning more robust to attack. This nascent field, which we call trustworthy machine learning, is currently fragmented across several research communities including machine learning, security, statistics, and theoretical computer science.
NEWS AT CTML
Challenges in Reliable Learning- Dr. Kamalika Chaudhuri
Dr. Chaudhuri will give this lecture through CalTech’s Keller Colloquium Series.
Center for Trustworthy Machine Learning Student Summit
Graduate students from several University’s will meet to review and discuss current research.
Middle and High School Teacher Training
Center faculty will instruct middle and high school computer science teachers on various machine learning, artificial intellegence, and trustworthy machine learning topics. This will increase these professional’s understanding of the complex issues concerning these topics and empower them to influence the researchers of tomorrow. This week long training will take place in Charlottesville VA.
Please check back for more details.
High School Student Summer Camp
Drs. Chaudhuri and Steinhardt, in coordination with AI4ALL, will participate in a week long summer camp in Berkeley CA. This camp will introduce students to a variety of machine learning and artificial intellegence topics, experts, and visit industries to see AI in action.
Please go here to see details on last year’s camp and check back for more info.
