On June 16, at 6 pm, we are very happy to welcome Professor Esfandiar Mohammadi from the University of Lübeck for our next Kiel.AI Meetup with a talk on security in the field of machine learning.
Machine learning techniques are versatile and applicable to many scenarios. Yet, their flexibility can lead to undesired side-effects and vulnerabilities. Esfandiar Mohammadi will discuss how a model can contain undesired footprints of potentially sensitive training data, how various federated learning approaches are even more vulnerable to leaking information about the training data, and how malicious actors in federated learning settings can inject malicious backdoors into a jointly trained model.
About our guest speaker:
Esfandiar Mohammadi is a tenured professor at University of Lübeck since 2019 with a research focus on IT security & data privacy, in particular privacy-preserving machine learning and anonymous communication.
