AI for Cybersecurity Is a Hot New Thing — and a Dangerous Gamble

Machine learning and artificial intelligence can help guard against cyberattacks, but hackers can foil security algorithms by targeting the data they train on and the warning flags they look for.

The privacy pro’s guide to explainability in machine learning

With the GDPR’s implementation date looming, there has been much discussion about whether the regulation requires a “right to an explanation” from machine learning models.

Regardless of the regulation’s effects on machine learning, however, the practical implications of attempting to explain machine learning models presents significant difficulties.

The privacy pro’s guide to explainability in machine learning

With the GDPR’s implementation date looming, there has been much discussion about whether the regulation requires a “right to an explanation” from machine learning models.

Regardless of the regulation’s effects on machine learning, however, the practical implications of attempting to explain machine learning models presents significant difficulties. These difficulties will become an increasing focus for privacy professionals as machine learning is deployed more and more throughout organizations in the future. The GDPR, in short, will not be the last law to address this issue.

Machine learning as a service: Can privacy be taught?

Machine learning requires massive amounts of data to teach the model. But we’re often uploading that data to machine learning cloud services run by folks like Amazon and Google, where it might be exposed to malicious actors. Can we use machine-learning-as-service and protect privacy?

In a recent paper, Chiron: Privacy-preserving Machine Learning as a Service Tyler Hunt, of the University of Texas, and others, presents a system that preserves privacy while enabling the use of cloud MLaaS.

Unlock the Value: From Data Quality to Artificial Intelligence

Data quality, data privacy, and advanced technologies such as AI, machine learning, neural networks, and more, are of top concern to data analytics pros and IT managers.

A data analytics program can be an engine that fuels digital transformation projects and operations, helps you better engage with customers, and uncovers insights that lead to that next revenue stream. These programs have become of strategic value to organizations and essential components of digital transformation efforts.

Fairness and Accountability Design Needs for Algorithmic Support in High-Stakes Public Sector Decision-Making

Calls for heightened consideration of fairness and accountability in algorithmically-informed public decisions—like taxation, justice, and child protection—are now commonplace. How might designers support such human values? We interviewed 27 public sector machine learning practitioners across 5 OECD countries regarding challenges understanding and imbuing public values into their work.
