The Schmidt Program on Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technologies at the Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs will host Ram Shankar Siva Kumar for a conversation about his book Not With A Bug, But With A Sticker: Attacks on Machine Learning Systems and What To Do About Them (coauthored with Hyrum Anderson). At Microsoft, Kumar founded the AI Red Team, bringing together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and engineers to proactively attack AI systems and defend from attacks. He is currently Tech Policy Fellow at UC Berkeley and an affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, where he is broadly investigating two questions: How do we assess the safety of ML systems? What are the policy and legal ramifications of AI, in the context of security? He is also Technical Advisory Board Member at the University of Washington.
