Seminar: Erklärbares Maschinelles Lernen

This seminar is concerned with explainable machine learning in computer security. Learning-based systems often are difficult to interpret, and their decisions are opaque to practitioners. This lack of transparency is a considerable problem in computer security, as black-box learning systems are hard to audit and protect from attacks.
The module introduces students to the emerging field of explainable machine learning and teaches them to work up results from recent research. To this end, the students will read up on a sub-field, prepare a seminar report, and present their work at the end of the term to their colleagues.

Topics cover different aspects of the explainability of machine learning methods for the application in computer security in particular.
