Title: On New Security and Safety Challenges Posed by LLMs and How to Evaluate Them


This online lecture delves into the pervasive integration of Large Language Models (LLMs) within numerous real-world applications, presenting both expansive opportunities for assistance across diverse tasks and formidable challenges in terms of security and safety. In contrast to previous models characterized by static generation, the dynamic, multi-turn, and adaptable nature of LLMs poses considerable difficulties for robust evaluation and control. Join us as we dissect the emergent risks associated with LLMs, explore methodologies for rigorous evaluation, and confront the complex obstacles involved in implementing effective mitigations.
