Understanding Security Threats Against Machine/Deep Learning Applications

Deep Dive
Big Data & Machine Learning

Machine Learning is the future and in some cases the present. Most developers and hackers alike are new to this area. At first blush, machine learning looks incredibly difficult. Linear algebra, calculus, statistics, probability, and advanced mathematics.

Come to my talk to get a quick understanding of neural networks and the associated hacking methods used against them: trojaning, adversarial examples, adversarial patches, data poisoning, model extraction and training data leakage.

Although this talk covers a complex topic, the ideas are explained such that all levels of developers will benefit.
