Nowadays, we are witnessing an increasing adoption of Machine Learning (ML) for solving complex real-world problems. However, despite some reports showing that ML models can produce results comparable and even superior to human experts, they are often vulnerable to carefully crafted perturbations and are prone to bias and hallucinations. Ensuring the trustworthiness of software systems enabled by machine learning is a very challenging task. In this talk, I will discuss challenges that we should overcome to build trustworthy ML-enabled systems and present some recent techniques and tools that we have proposed to improve the trustworthiness of autonomous robotic systems.
