Galois Tech Talk: Robust Artificial Intelligence and Anomaly Detection
Galois, Inc

Abstract: Recent progress in AI and machine learning is stimulating interest in applying AI in high stakes applications such as self-driving cars, surgical robots, and autonomous weapons systems. These applications require high levels of software assurance and resilience, but virtually all AI research has focused on raw performance without paying attention to questions of robustness and resilience.

In this talk, I will survey AI research that aims to create robust systems. I will consider both robustness to “known unknowns” and robustness to “unknown unknowns” — that is, to unmodeled aspects of the environment.

One technology that is relevant to creating robust AI systems is anomaly detection. In the second part of the talk, I will survey the work at Oregon State on anomaly detection. I’ll discuss our recent research on applying anomaly detection to problems of fraud detection and equipment diagnosis and discuss methods for explaining anomaly alarms to an analyst and incorporating analyst feedback into the anomaly detection process.

Bio: Dr. Tom Dietterich (AB Oberlin College 1977; MS University of Illinois 1979; PhD Stanford University 1984) is Professor Emeritus and Director of Intelligent Systems Research in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University, where he joined the faculty in 1985. Dietterich has devoted his career to machine learning and artificial intelligence. He has authored more than 180 publications and two books. His research is motivated by challenging real world problems ranging from personal information management, to drug design, to sustainability, and most recently to problems in safe and robust artificial intelligence. Dietterich has also devoted many years of service to the research community. He is Past President of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, and he previously served as President of AAAI (2014-16) and as the founding president of the International Machine Learning Society (2001-08). Other major roles include Executive Editor of the journal Machine Learning (1992-98), co-founder of the Journal for Machine Learning Research (2000), and program chair of AAAI 1990 and NIPS 2000. He is currently the moderator for machine learning on arXiv. Dietterich is a Fellow of the ACM, AAAS, and AAAI.

TECHFLUENCE
Ziba Auditorium

Join us for a special evening with Daniel Wilson, author of the New York Times bestselling Robopocalypse and its sequel Robogenesis, as well as seven other books.

Daniel, who earned a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, as well as Masters degrees in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will be reading from his most recent novel, The Clockwork Dynasty.

After the reading, Daniel will be joined by Todd Greco, Ziba’s Director of Interactive Design, in a conversation exploring where science, technology and design overlap, and the future of machines. We look forward to audience engagement in this conversation. Daniel will be available for a book signing following the speaking program.

The Clockwork Dynasty imagines a history in which humanlike court automatons secretly served the great empires of antiquity. Centuries later, the same machines are running out of power. As the modern-day survivors cannibalize each other for energy, a human scientist will risk her life to find the origin of the machine race, and the key to saving it.

Doors at 5:30pm, show starts promptly at 6pm. Pizza & drinks to follow.
