On this week’s Priorities podcast, researchers at the National Institute for Standards and Technology warn of threats to artificial intelligence systems. Apostol Vassilev, a computer scientist at NIST, co-authored a report about how hackers can target AI through “data poisoning.” One of the biggest threats, he says, is that there’s no real defense against it. Also on the podcast, Joseph Thacker, principal AI engineer and security researcher at AppOmni, advises how state and local governments can protect sensitive information and still embrace AI amid concerns of data poisoning.
