Researcher to discuss threats to machine learning and AI applications
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are powering some of the latest advances in self-driving cars, smart speakers and highly personalized, recommendation engines. But these technologies are also vulnerable to potentially dangerous hacks and manipulations, according to Patrick McDaniel, the William L. Weiss Professor of Information and Communications Technology in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
Many practical issues are related to questions of theory – this steered Jara Uitto’s interest towards theoretical computer science
Even though theoretical computer science is – as its name suggests – theoretical, its connection to real-life questions is easy to draw, says Assistant Professor Jara Uitto
