USENIX Security and AI Networking Summit (ScAINet)

10 Aug, 2020 - 10 Aug, 2020

The 2020 USENIX Security and AI Networking Summit (ScAINet '20) will be co-located with the 29th USENIX Security Symposium and will take place August 10, 2020, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston, MA, USA. ScAINet is a single-track summit of cutting edge and thought-inspiring talks covering a wide range of topics at the intersection of ML/AI, security, and privacy. The format will be similar to Enigma, but with a focus on security and AI. Our goal is to explore the emerging landscape of machine learning security and privacy applications and implications. We take a broad view of the field, with an eye to anticipating the risks and benefits of these technologies—including externalities such as privacy risks, disparate impact, latent biases; and offensive uses of machine learning, including traditional 'red teaming', construction of intentionally biased models, and the exploitation of biases and flaws in machine learning algorithms for malicious effect. We expect to build a rich and vibrant community which brings academia and industry together under the same roof to build on successes and address the challenges.
