CS Distinguished Lecture: Vitaly Shmatikov (Cornell) - Machine Learning and Privacy: Friends or Foes?
Thu, Jan 19, 2017 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM
Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science
Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars
Speaker: Vitaly Shmatikov, Cornell University
Talk Title: Machine Learning and Privacy: Friends or Foes?
Series: CS Distinguished Lectures
Abstract: Recent advances in machine learning provide powerful new tools and juicy new targets for data privacy research. I will first show how to use machine learning against systems that partially encrypt data in storage while computing over it. Then, I will turn machine learning against itself, to extract sensitive training data from machine-learning models --- including black-box models constructed using Google's and Amazon's "learning-as-a-service" platforms. I will conclude with open research questions at the junction of machine learning and privacy.
Biography: Vitaly Shmatikov is a professor at Cornell Tech, where he works on computer security and privacy. He most recently served as the program chair of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy ("Oakland").
