Speaker: Jens Lundström, Senior Lecturer at Halmstad University (HU)
Title: Privacy-preserving and Explainable Machine Learning for Healthcare

Where: Digital Futures hub, Osquars Backe 5, floor 2 at KTH main campus OR Zoom

Administrator: Rami Mochaourab,

Abstract: Machine learning-based models have been deployed and used for years in various industries. As these models become more complex and integrated into daily decisions, several needs arise. This talk will focus on two questions related to those needs; 1) how to preserve privacy during model training and after deployment, and 2) how to explain specific models such as Graph Neural Networks. This talk will introduce the concepts of privacy-preserving machine learning, with a specific focus on synthetic data generation as well as federated learning methods. Ongoing research and feasibility studies at Halmstad University will be highlighted.
