Generally speaking, ML Robustness concerns how machine learners should react when the training and testing distributions are not identical, which can arise from any of the following situations:

  • The underlying data collection procedure is corrupted due to human labeling error or measurement noise.
  • Test-time inputs are manipulated by malicious users, i.e., adversarial examples. 
  • Training data are manipulated by adversaries, i.e., poisoning and backdoor attacks.
  • Distribution shifts may exist whenever the model is deployed in a new environment.

In this advanced lecture, you will learn topics in robust statistics, adversarial machine learning, and out-of-distribution generalization. This course assumes that students have prior knowledge of machine learning and optimization.
