# Project Details
The goal of the course project is to dive more deeply into a particular topic.
The project can be completed either **individually** or in **groups of two**. A
good project could potentially lead to a publishable result. This project could
take different forms:
- **Conceptual**: Extend a technique or explore a new application.
- **Experience report**: Experiment with an existing implementation, trying out
different examples and describing the overall experience. Or make a new
implementation.
- **Literature survey**: Select a couple (3-5) of related papers in a recent
research area. Summarize the significance, then compare and contrast.

just want some advice, **please come talk to me** and I will try to help you get

This is a graduate-level course covering advanced topics in security and privacy
in data science. We will focus on four areas at the current research frontier:
(1) differential privacy, (2) applied cryptography, (3) language-based security,
and (4) adversarial machine learning. Students will read, present, and discuss
papers from the research literature (i.e., conference and journal papers), and
complete a final project.

Lectures will be loosely organized around four **modules**: differential
privacy, applied cryptography, language-based security, and adversarial machine
learning. I will give most of the lectures for the first module (differential
privacy). For the other modules, I will give an overview lecture surveying the
topic and background material. Then, each student will lead one lecture,
presenting a paper and guiding the discussion.
Lectures will be loosely organized around three core modules: differential
privacy, adversarial machine learning, and applied cryptography. We will also
cover two advanced modules: algorithmic fairness, and PL and verification
techniques.
