CS 81SI: AI Interpretability and Fairness

As black-box AI models grow increasingly relevant in human-centric applications, explainability and fairness becomes increasingly necessary for trust in adopting AI models. This seminar class introduces students to major problems in AI explainability and fairness, and explores key state-of-theart methods. Key technical topics include surrogate methods, feature visualization, network dissection, adversarial debiasing, and fairness metrics. There will be a survey of recent legal and policy trends. Each week a guest lecturer from AI research, industry, and related policy fields will present an open problem and solution, followed by a roundtable discussion with the class. Students have the opportunity to present a topic of interestnor application to their own projects (solo or in teams) in the final class. Code examples of each topic will be provided for students interested in a particular topic, but there will be no required coding components. Students who will benefit most from this clas more »

Students who will benefit most from this class have exposure to AI, such as through projects and related coursework (e.g. statistics, CS221, CS230, CS229). Students who are pursuing subjects outside of the CS department (e.g. sciences, social sciences, humanities) with sufficient mathematical maturity are welcomed to apply. Enrollment limited to 20.

CS 230: Deep Learning

Deep Learning is one of the most highly sought after skills in AI. We will help you become good at Deep Learning. In this course, you will learn the foundations of Deep Learning, understand how to build neural networks, and learn how to lead successful machine learning projects. You will learn about Convolutional networks, RNNs, LSTM, Adam, Dropout, BatchNorm, Xavier/He initialization, and more. You will work on case studies from healthcare, autonomous driving, sign language reading, music generation, and natural language processing. You will master not only the theory, but also see how it is applied in industry. You will practice all these ideas in Python and in TensorFlow, which we will teach. AI is transforming multiple industries. After this course, you will likely find creative ways to apply it to your work. This class is taught in the flipped-classroom format. You will watch videos and complete in-depth programming assignments and online quizzes at home, then come in to class for advanced discussions and work on projects. This class will culminate in an open-ended final project, which the teaching team will help you on. Prerequisites: Familiarity with programming in Python and Linear Algebra (matrix / vector multiplications). CS 229 may be taken concurrently.

CS 236G: Generative Adversarial Networks

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have rapidly emerged as the state-of-the-art technique in realistic image generation. This course presents theoretical intuition and practical knowledge on GANs, from their simplest to their state-of-the-art forms. Their benefits and applications span realistic image editing that is omnipresent in popular app filters, enabling tumor classification under low data schemes in medicine, and visualizing realistic scenarios of climate change destruction. This course also examines key challenges of GANs today, including reliable evaluation, inherent biases, and training stability. After this course, students should be familiar with GANs and the broader generative models and machine learning contexts in which these models are situated. Prerequisites: linear algebra, statistics, CS106B, plus a graduate-level AI course such as: CS230, CS229 (or CS129), or CS221.

CS 329S: Machine Learning Systems Design

This project-based course covers the iterative process for designing, developing, and deploying machine learning systems. It focuses on systems that require massive datasets and compute resources, such as large neural networks. Students will learn about the different layers of the data pipeline, approaches to model selection, training, scaling, as well as how to deploy, monitor, and maintain ML systems. In the process, students will learn about important issues including privacy, fairness, and security. Pre-requisites: At least one of the following; CS229, CS230, CS231N, CS224N or equivalent. Students should have a good understanding of machine learning algorithms and should be familiar with at least one framework such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, JAX.

CS 329T: Trustworthy Machine Learning

This course will provide an introduction to state-of-the-art ML methods designed to make AI more trustworthy. The course focuses on four concepts: explanations, fairness, privacy, and robustness. We first discuss how to explain and interpret ML model outputs and inner workings. Then, we examine how bias and unfairness can arise in ML models and learn strategies to mitigate this problem. Next, we look at differential privacy and membership inference in the context of models leaking sensitive information when they are not supposed to. Finally, we look at adversarial attacks and methods for imparting robustness against adversarial manipulation.nnStudents will gain understanding of a set of methods and tools for deploying transparent, ethically sound, and robust machine learning solutions. Students will complete labs, homework assignments, and discuss weekly readings. Prerequisites: CS229 or similar introductory Python-based ML class; knowledge of deep learning such as CS230, CS231N; familiarity with ML frameworks in Python (scikit-learn, Keras) assumed.

CS 335: Fair, Accountable, and Transparent (FAccT) Deep Learning

Deep learning-based AI systems have demonstrated remarkable learning capabilities. A growing field in deep learning research focuses on improving the Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency (FAccT) of a model in addition to its performance. Although FAccT will be difficult to achieve, emerging technical approaches in this topic show promise in making better FAccT AI systems. In this course, we will study the rigorous computer science necessary foundations for FAccT deep learning and dive into the technical underpinnings of topics including fairness, robustness, interpretability, accountability, and privacy. These topics reflect state-of-the-art research in FAccT, are socially important, and they have strong industrial interest due to government and other policy regulation. This course will focus on the algorithmic and statistical methods needed to approach FAccT AI from a deep learning perspective. We will also discuss several application areas where we can apply these techniques. P more »
