  • The goal of this tutorial is to elucidate the unique and novel connections between algorithmic fairness and the rich literature on adversarial machine learning. Compared to other tutorials on AI fairness, this tutorial will emphasize the connection between recent advances in fair learning and adversarial robustness literature. The range of the presented techniques will cover a complete fairness pipeline, starting from auditing ML models for fairness violations, post-processing them to rapidly alleviate bias, and re-training or fine-tuning models to achieve algorithmic fairness. Each topic will be presented in the context of adversarial ML, specifically, (i) connections between fair similarity metrics for individual fairness and adversarial attack radius, (ii) auditing as an adversarial attack, (iii) fair learning as adversarial training, (iv) distributionally robust optimization for group fairness. We will conclude with (v) a summary of the most recent advances in adversarial ML and its potential applications in algorithmic fairness.

    The tutorial is designed for a broad range of audiences, including researchers, students, developers, and industrial practitioners. Basic knowledge of machine learning and deep learning is preferred but not required. All topics will be supported with relevant background and demonstrations on varying real data use-cases utilizing Python libraries for fair machine learning.

  • Asset Health and Monitoring is an emerging AI Application that aims to deliver efficient AI-powered solutions to various industrial problems such as anomaly detection, failure pattern analysis, etc. In this lab-based tutorial, we present a web-based time series anomaly detection tool – a new scikit-learn compatible toolkit specialized for the time series-based anomaly detection problem. The key focus of our tutorial includes the design and development of an anomaly detection pipeline, a zero-configuration interface for automated discovery of an anomaly pipeline for any given dataset (univariate and multi-variate), a set of 5 frequently used workflow empirically derived from past experiences, a scalable technique for conducting efficient pipeline execution. We extensively tested deployed anomaly detection services using multiple datasets with varying time-series data characteristics.

  • We propose an NL paradigm and platform for the construction of business automation rules that incorporate a constrained natural language (CNL) – a domain-specific highly consumable language to validate and review synthesized code. Our approach utilizes LLMs to translate business rules described in NL into CNL for human review which can then be transpiled into the business automation code of the rule engine. To address challenges in the translation from NL to CNL, we utilize several techniques such as constrained decoding, fine-tuning and prompt engineering.
