(Lehigh University) Lehigh University computer science professor Ting Wang has earned a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the NSF–more than $500,000 over five years–to support his research into the security implications of reusing untrusted primitive models in complex machine learning systems and his efforts in developing tools to help mitigate those threats. The grant is related to Wang’s previous NSF award on identifying infinitesimal manipulations to data that triggered deep learning systems to fail.
