Recent research has demonstrated that AI can introduce new risks and vulnerabilities in a system. In particular, I will talk about two main risks: security and privacy. I will show that attacks that can be performed to exploit AI models and attack the systems that use them, and that AI-based systems can be privacy-intrusive. I will then outline our current research and projects on making AI safer.
