Machine learning models are often susceptible to adversarial deception of their input at test time, which is leading to a poorer performance. In this session we will investigate the feasibility of deception in source code attribution techniques in real world environment. This session will present attack scenarios on users identity in open-source projects and discuss possible protection methods. Read more.
