CPS Lab member Vidyasagar Sadhu (working with Professor Dario Pompili) and his multi-university team has won the Center for Science of Information (CSoI) student research project grant funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The year-long project, titled “Defending Large-Scale Distributed Machine Learning Against Adversarial Attacks”, is supported with an amount of $6,000 towards meeting/travel expenses. This student-led project, which is in collaboration with three other PhD students – Lili Su (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), Seyyed Fatemi (University of Hawaii, Manoa), and Rehana Mahfuz (Purdue University, West Lafayette), aims at developing novel algorithmic techniques that can contain/counter the effects of selfish agents/Byzantine attacks in a distributed machine-learning scenario.

Congratulations Vidyasagar!
