Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) have become a popular tool for learning representations of graph-structured inputs, with applications in computational chemistry, recommendation, pharmacy, reasoning, and many other areas.
Machine learning as a service (MLaaS) has emerged as a paradigm allowing clients to outsource machine learning computations to the cloud. However, MLaaS raises immediate security concerns, specifically relating to the integrity (or correctness) of computations performed by an untrusted cloud, and the privacy of the client’s data. In this talk, I discuss frameworks we built on cryptographic tools that can be used for secure deep learning based inference on an untrusted cloud: CryptoNAS (building models for private inference) and SafetyNets (addressing correctness).
The focus of our work is to obtain finite-sample and/or finite-time convergence bounds of various model-free Reinforcement Learning (RL) algorithms. Many RL algorithms are special cases of Stochastic Approximation (SA), which is a popular approach for solving fixed point equations when the information is corrupted by noise. We first obtain finite-sample bounds for general SA using a generalized Moreau envelope as a smooth potential/ Lyapunov function.
