Quantifying Privacy Risks of Machine Learning Models
Yang Zhang, CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security
Machine learning has made tremendous progress during the past decade. While continuing to improve our daily lives, recent research shows that machine learning models are vulnerable to various privacy attacks. In this talk, I'll cover our two recent works on quantifying the privacy risks of machine learning models. First, I will talk about some recent development of membership inference, including membership inference with only labels and attacks against machine unlearning. Second, I will present our work on the first link stealing attacks against graph neural networks.
