  • CS Colloquium: Ali Babar (University of Adelaide) - Building ML Based Software Security Solutions: Data Wrangling Lessons and Recommendations

    Mon, Oct 09, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Ali Babar, University of Adelaide, Australia

    Talk Title: Building ML Based Software Security Solutions: Data Wrangling Lessons and Recommendations

    Abstract: Learning based approaches to ensuring software security are attracting significant interest. It is well known that AI and ML based approaches are heavily reliant on the quality of data garbage in, garbage out. Hence, Data Wrangling serves as an important, but expensive, phase of using AI and ML for software security. Like any AI and ML based effort, our R and D efforts for leveraging AI and ML for software security have encountered several significant challenges of Data Wrangling. Our pursuit of finding and devising reliable solutions to security data quality challenges has taught us that the expensiveness and error proneness of Data Wrangling activities can be a barrier to widespread industrial adoption of AI and ML based approaches to software security. We believe that it is important to engage the relevant stakeholders for developing and sharing knowledge and technologies aimed at improving software security data quality. To this end, we are not only systematically identifying and synthesizing the existing empirical literature on improving data quality, but also devising suitable solutions for easing the problems we experienced and observed during Data Wrangling. This talk will draw lessons and recommendations from our efforts of systematically reviewing the state of the art and developing solutions for improving data quality while building and using AI and ML based software security solutions such as SVP models.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium
