Episode four features Jennifer Rexford, CITP executive committee member and the Gordon Y.S. Wu professor in engineering, a professor of computer science and the chair of that department. Jen discusses how most of us don’t think twice about entering our credit card numbers when using the internet and don’t tend to worry about how someone might be looking over our shoulder. How secure is the internet from attacks?
Episode six features Prateek Mittal, CITP associated faculty member and associate professor of electrical engineering at Princeton University. Prateek discusses how hackers can use adversarial tactics toward artificial intelligence to take advantage of us and our data.
