Is Your Machine Learning/Quantum Computer Lying to You?
If you ask a machine learning model to give you an answer, how would you know if it’s skewed? How would you know if the inputs or outputs have been tampered with? RSA 2020 – Is your machine learning/quantum computer lying to you?
And how would you know if the algorithm was tampered with? Quantum computing is the new heir apparent to AI in terms of number of wild security claims. Several years ago, you could add AI to a marketing sentence and then sell products of vacuous import.
That crown is oozing toward quantum. Throw in encryption and you get a raise, maybe even an IPO. At RSA, however, there’s a real quantum computing group working on real problems – the problem of whether “random” numbers, used as input for cryptographic algorithms generated by quantum computing – can be forged.
