Towards Trustworthy AI

Abstract: Unlike traditional programs, AI systems built on neural networks are subject to a variety of vulnerabilities, such as adversarial attacks and backdoor attacks. While it is tempting to apply existing program analysis techniques to address the AI problems, it should be also noted that neural networks are fundamentally different from software systems, and thus what worked for software may not work for neural networks. In this talk, I will discuss what perhaps would be required to build trustworthy AI. Our effort on establishing the absence of backdoor attacks on a given neural network will be presented as a concrete example.
