Privacy of Machine Learning
Machine learning has witnessed tremendous progress during the past decade, and data is the key to such success. However, in many cases, machine learning models are trained on sensitive data, e.g., biomedical records, and such data can be leaked from trained machine learning models. In this seminar, we will cover the newest research papers in this direction.
Advanced Lecture: Privacy Enhancing Technologies
This course will cover the topic of data privacy from four aspects: social network privacy, location privacy, Machine learning privacy, biomedical privacy.
Seminar: Data-driven Approaches on Understanding Disinformation
In this seminar, we will look into research that focuses on extracting insights from large corpus of data with the goal to understand emerging socio-technical issues on the Web such as the dissemination of disinformation and hateful content.
Seminar: Data Privacy
Students will learn, summarize, and present state-of-the-art scientific papers in data privacy. Topics include social network privacy, machine learning privacy, and biomedical data privacy.
