COSC 89.27 Security and Privacy of Machine Learning

Today we see applications of machine learning almost everywhere we look – in the domains of autonomous driving, medical diagnosis, fraud detection, etc. While the use of machine learning is increasing in our day-to-day lives, these techniques also pose significant threats to security and data privacy. This course will explore recent academic research at the intersection of machine learning, security, and data privacy that demonstrates the risks adversaries pose to machine learning systems. The research papers explored in this course would cover attacks on machine learning systems as well as defense techniques to mitigate such attacks. Students will read, analyze, and discuss research papers, write summaries, take notes, and undertake a term-long research project.


COSC 74. Assumes that students understand basics of machine learning. Knowledge of security & privacy useful but not required if students are willing/able to learn background materials on their own.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
