【The 57th Seminar】

Date and Time: February 22nd 9:00 am – 10:00 am(JST)

Venue: Zoom webinar

Language: English

Speaker: Andrew Ilyas (MIT)
Title: Datamodels: Predicting Predictions from Training Data:
Short Abstract
Machine learning models tend to rely on an abundance of training data. Yet, understanding the underlying structure of this data—and models’ exact dependence on it—remains a challenge. In this talk, we will present a framework for directly modeling predictions as functions of training data. This framework, given a dataset and a learning algorithm, pinpoints—at varying levels of granularity—the relationships between train and test point pairs through the lens of the corresponding model class. Even in its most basic version, our framework enables many applications, including discovering data subpopulations, quantifying model brittleness via counterfactuals, and comparing learning algorithms. Based on joint work with Sung Min Park, Logan Engstrom, Harshay Shah, Guillaume Leclerc, and Aleksander Madry.

Andrew Ilyas is a fourth-year PhD student at MIT, advised by Aleksander Madry and Constantinos Daskalakis. His research focuses on robust and reliable machine learning, with an emphasis on the ways in which (often unintended) correlations present in training data can manifest at test-time. He is supported by an Open Philanthropy Project AI Fellowship.

All participants are required to agree with the AIP Seminar Series Code of Conduct.
