DescriptionMachine learning and artificial intelligence are incredibly powerful tools that have become pervasive in our lives. Large datasets combined with massive computing power has resulted in models whose accuracy excedes that of humans at narrowly scoped tasks, such as computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. From the earliest Bayesian spam filters to the latest deep learning models, researchers have tried to adopt the machine learning tools to improve security and privacy. However, the adoption of machine learning is not without its consequences and we must face the sobering truth about technology: any tool or technology can be the target of adversaries or used for nefarious objectives. AI is no different. In this talk I'll expand on three themes at the intersection of AI and security: the use of AI in security; attacking AI; and the weaponization of AI.
