How artificial intelligence can be turned against us: Prateek Mittal, associate professor of electrical engineering
Manage episode 274354897 series 2800589
Prateek Mittal, associate professor of electrical engineering at Princeton University, is here to discuss his team's research into how hackers can use adversarial tactics toward artificial intelligence to take advantage of us and our data.
In the context of self driving cars, think about a bad actor that aims to cause large-scale congestion or even accidents. In the context of social media platforms, think about an adversary that aims to propagate misinformation or manipulate elections. In the context of network systems, think about an adversary that aims to bring down the power grid or disrupt our communication systems. These are examples of using AI against us, which is a focus of Mittal's research.
Later, we'll be joined by grad students in his lab, each of whom is leading fascinating research into these tactics and how we might safeguard against them.
