Balancing Covariates In Randomized Experiments Using The Gram–Schmidt Walk

March 9, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Daniel Spielman (Yale)

Zoom

ABSTRACT Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) are the principal way we estimate the effectiveness of new medications, procedures, policies, and interventions. In a typical medical trial, the subjects are divided into two (or more) groups. One group of subjects is given the new medicine, and the other is given a placebo or old medicine. Randomization is used to ensure that these test and control groups are probably similar and enables us to make statistical statements about the estimated treatment effects. When we know nothing…

Challenges in Reliable Machine Learning

February 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Kamalika Chaudhuri (University of California San Diego)

Zoom

ABSTRACT As machine learning is increasingly deployed, there is a need for reliable and robust methods that go beyond simple test accuracy.  In this talk, we will discuss two challenges that arise in reliable machine learning. The first is robustness to adversarial examples, which are small imperceptible perturbations to legitimate test inputs that cause machine learning classifiers to misclassify. While recent work has proposed many attacks and defenses, why exactly they arise still remains a mystery. In this talk, we'll…
