With ML becoming more and more mainstream, the side effects of using machine learning and AI on our lives become more and more visible. Companies have learned, often through painful experience, that one has to take extra measures to make machine learning models fair and unbiased so that they don’t pick up on hidden biases in the data. In addition, awareness for preserving the privacy in ML models is rapidly growing. For example, it is possible that private data within the training examples can be retrieved from a learned model without extra measures. In this talk, we will look at techniques and concepts around fairness, privacy, and security when it comes to machine learning models.
