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.

AI and Security Teacher Training at UVA
We are excited to announce the AI and Security Teacher Training at the University of Virginia this summer. Our goal is to help high school teachers learn about artificial intelligence and cybersecurity while participating in hands-on activities and experiences they can adapt to use in their classroom. This is a week full of exciting collaborative and real-world learning which will include working with experts in the fields of cybersecurity as well as artificial intelligence. To apply, please go HERE.
High School 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 for more details and to apply.
