How to Secure Our Future: Machine Learning Security with Gary McGraw
July 1 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Machine Learning, the most popular form of Artificial Intelligence, appears to have made impressive progress on many tasks including image classification, machine translation, autonomous vehicle control, playing complex games including chess, Go, and Atari video games, and more. This has led to much breathless popular press coverage of Artificial Intelligence, and has elevated deep learning to an almost magical status in the eyes of many. ML, especially of the deep learning sort, is not magic, however. ML has become so popular that its application, though often poorly understood and partially motivated by hype, is exploding. Whether you know it or not, you are very likely using machine learning technology today. In my view, this is not necessarily a good thing. I am concerned with the systematic risk invoked by adopting ML in a haphazard fashion. Our research at the Berryville Institute of Machine Learning (BIIML) is focused on understanding and categorizing security engineering risks introduced by ML at the design level. This talk, geared to a general audience of nontechnical people, focuses on the results of an architectural risk analysis (sometimes called a threat model) of ML systems in general. A list of the top five (of 78 known) ML security risks will be presented.
