Abstract: Trustworthy AI is broadly used as an umbrella term encompassing multiple aspects of machine learning-based solutions, notably including robustness, reliability, safety, security, scalability, and interpretability. Some of these aspects are of higher importance for adopting mostly autonomous solutions, others - for applications involving human-in-the-loop in decision making. In this talk, I aim to discuss several real world and foundational aspects of trustworthiness with respect to the challenges of frugal AI, explainable AI, and adversarial AI over evolving data.
