Daniel Lowd is an academic expert in machine learning and artificial intelligence. His specific expertise includes adversarial machine learning. These are problems like spam and fraud detection, where it's difficult to build good models because people will always be working to trick them. Daniel researches a range of problems in this area, including understanding the vulnerabilities of popular machine learning methods, how an attacker could exploit them, and how we can build models that are more robust and reliable.
