Speaker: Dr. Adnan Darwiche, UCLA
Talk Title: Explaining and Verifying AI Systems
Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series
Abstract: Explaining the decisions of AI systems and formally verifying their properties have come into focus recently. In this talk, Dr. Darwiche will discuss an approach for explaining and verifying Bayesian network classifiers, which is based on compiling them into equivalent and symbolic decision graphs. He will also discuss a new class of circuits that are as expressive as neural networks and that can be synthesized from Bayesian network models, allowing one to provide formal guarantees on their behaviors regardless of how they are trained from data.
This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium
