Recent Advances in Trustworthy Machine Learning


In this talk, I will discuss recent advances in trustworthy machine learning. In the first part, I will explain why current machine learning algorithms and systems are not trustworthy -- they are neither fair, robust, private, nor ethical. This calls for the need for a novel approach to design trustworthy machine learning algorithms and systems. I will then share two drastically different approaches to tackle this challenge -- multi-level programming and language models.
