Prof. Alex Dimakis

Prof. Alex Dimakis and his collaborators have investigated a potential threat to text-comprehension AIs. “When we deploy these AIs and we have no idea what they’re really doing, I think it’s a little scary,” Dimakis says.


The study was led by Shijia Wei, a Ph.D. candidate in the Cockrell School’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; his adviser, assistant professor Mohit Tiwari; and colleagues, professor Michael Orshansky and associate professor Andreas Gerstlauer.
