Machine learning models are often susceptible to adversarial deception of their input at test time, which leads to poorer performance. Alina Matyukhina investigates the feasibility of deception in source code attribution techniques in real-world environments and explores attack scenarios on users' identities in open source projects—along with possible protection methods.
