Speaker Thai Le Abstract Responsible AI models should not only be accurate but also resilient to security threats and transparent to users. Despite their high performance, many recent Natural Language Processing models are vulnerable to adversarial text attacks. As these models become more complex, understanding their decision-making process and ensuring compliance with societal standards is crucial. To illuminate these topics, this talk first introduces the first and most comprehensive c...

Throughout history, gardens have come to be understood as a powerful setting in which societies embed a series of beliefs, myths, and fictions. A garden may well be a physical place, but it also has the potential to transcend its physicality through the actions that take place there and the meanings these actions produce. However, as John Dixon Hunt (2004) has argued, we tend to be drawn more towards origin stories of gardens, focusing on the initiation of sites and the original designs or i...
