Srijan Kumar is an Assistant Professor at the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He completed his postdoctoral training at Stanford University, received a Ph.D. and M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, College Park, and B.Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He develops AI and Data Mining methods to detect and mitigate the pressing threats posed by malicious actors (e.g., evaders, sockpuppets, etc.) and harmful content (e.g., misinformation, hate speech etc.) to web users and platforms. His methods have been used in production at Flipkart (India’s largest e-commerce platform) and influenced Twitter’s Birdwatch system. He has been selected as an NSF CAREER awardee, a Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences, named as Forbes 30 under 30 honoree in Science, ACM SIGKDD Doctoral Dissertation Award runner-up 2018, and best paper honorable mention award from the ACM Web Conference. He has also won the Adobe Faculty Award and the Facebook Faculty Award. His research has been covered in the popular press, including CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, and New York Magazine.



The Robustness and Reliability of Large Language and Multimodal Models

LLMs and multimodal models have been shown to make unexpected errors, highlighting that they are not robust. I will discuss my group’s latest research (from ACL, EMNLP, ICWSM, etc.) that identify the scenarios in which robustness issues occur in multilingual, multimodal, and few-shot learning models.



Dr. Huishuai Zhang is a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Asia. He obtained his bachelor degree from University of Science and Technology of China and my Ph.D degree from Syracuse University. His main research interests include trustworthy machine learning, deep learning theory and optimization. He aims at understanding the fundamental limits of privacy protection and machine learning, designing efficient and robust learning algorithms.
