    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").
