  • PhD Thesis Proposal - Tiantian Feng

    Wed, Sep 07, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar


    PhD Candidate: Tiantian Feng

    Title: Towards designing trustworthy human-centered machine intelligence: A privacy-enhancing perspective

    Committee:
    Shrikanth Narayanan, Professor Laurent Itti, Professor Aiichiro Nakano, Professor Kristina Lerman, and Professor Morteza Dehghani (external)

    Human-centered machine intelligence has revolutionized many leading domains ranging from transportation and healthcare to education and defense, profoundly changing how people live, work, and interact with each other. Human-centered ML systems often require acquiring and processing multimodal data from people in sensitive environments and contexts, such as homes, workplaces, hospitals, and schools. These systems also utilize state-of-art machine learning (ML) algorithms to achieve a deeper understanding of human conditions, such as state, trait, and interactions, which provide possibilities to create technologies that increasingly support and enhance human experiences. Despite the promises human-centric ML systems can deliver, they have drawn substantial concerns in recent years on their potential adverse impact on society, forcing researchers to design trustworthy ML systems to address fairness, accountability, privacy, and related topics before an ML system can be deployed widely. In particular, these systems create critical risks in potentially leaking sensitive information that people might want to keep private. The sensitive information can be individual attributes (e.g., age, gender), states (e.g., health, emotions), or biometric fingerprints. In this thesis proposal, I focus on exploring privacy risks and privacy-enhancing computation in modern human-centered ML systems. I will start the thesis proposal by introducing recent efforts that utilizes human-centered machine intelligence to capture meaningful human behavioral patterns. Then I introduce a series of my recent works on privacy attacks, such as attribute inference attacks and label inference attacks, which motivate us to develop mitigation strategies. I will then present a proposal that aims to extend our privacy-enhancing computation to other privacy attacks, like membership inference attacks and data reconstruction attacks. I also propose to study the impact of privacy-enhancing computing on other aspects of trustworthy computing, like fairness. The proposal will demonstrate the importance of privacy-enhancing computation, especially in designing trustworthy human-centered machine intelligence.

    Speaker: Cristina Davis, UC Davis

    Talk Title: Advances in exhaled breath metabolomics analysis and diagnostics

    Abstract: There is an entire field of research dedicated to the chemical analysis of exhaled breath, and the enticing promise of non-invasive medical diagnostics and monitoring. Biomarker detection and identification in breath rests on appropriate sampling and analysis protocols, which are now well established. There is compelling evidence breath chemicals change over time in response to illness and overall health and exposures. Exhaled breath is comprised of both breath gas vapors (CO2, NO, volatile organic compounds) and small diameter breath aerosols (with proteins, peptides, drugs and large metabolites frequently observed in blood). We have advanced controlled breath sampling systems for exhaled breath vapors (EBV) and exhaled breath condensate (EBC) which samples both the gas and aerosol breath fractions. We have also developed mass spectrometry-based analysis methodologies and directly compare metabolite coverage in EBC to guide sampling and methodology choices. We have used this approach to measure large molecules in EBC that are physiologically relevant (e.g. drugs and inflammatory biomarkers), and we have developed devices appropriate to use in clinical settings

    Biography: Dr. Cristina Davis is a Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, Davis (Davis, CA). Her research group focuses on creating miniature analytical sensor systems for mobile chemical detection platforms and human performance monitoring. Final system integration of her devices yields analyzers that are specifically tailored for various high impact application areas including biomedical monitoring and surveillance for precision medicine.

    Prof. Davis earned her BS degree (1994) at Duke University with a double major in mathematics and biology. She went on to complete her MS (1996) and PhD (1999) in biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia focusing on novel biosensor research. She then worked on silicon-chip based biosensors during a postdoctoral fellowship at The Johns Hopkins University. She then worked in industry in Switzerland and then to become a Principal Member of the Technical Staff and the founding Group Leader of Bioengineering at The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory (Cambridge, MA) Having spent almost a half-decade in the national labs and industry, she returned to academia in November 2005.

    She served as a Member of the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) for the United States Air Force (2014-2018), and is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and National Academy of Inventors (NAI). She has been a Co-Founder and Scientific Advisor to three start-ups based on her research.
