NordSec 2017 Keynote:

Security and Privacy Challenges in Machine Learning

Dr. Ananth Raghunathan, Google

Abstract: This talk covers many of the security and privacy issues raised by the recent advances in machine learning. In particular, I'll present recent results in protecting the privacy of sensitive training data, and recent attacks enabled by semi-supervised learning and knowledge transfer.

Ananth Raghunathan is a Senior Research Scientist at Google Brain's Privacy and Security group. He currently works on novel techniques to collect data with privacy, post-quantum security, and other topics involving applied cryptography, security, and machine learning. Prior to joining Google, Ananth received his Ph.D. from Stanford where his research focused on modeling and building secure deterministic and searchable encryption schemes.
