State-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, especially Deep Learning (DL) based systems, are highly dependent on the training/tuning data. Here AI systems includes all kind of practical systems using AI techniques, such as Cloud/Edge systems, IoT systems, CPS systems, etc. The invasive development and implementations of AI have thus incurred tremendous demands over the data market. Efficient and accurate synthesis of a given dataset is critical to AI systems. For example, data that of higher utilities with more representative features can help AI systems converge faster with higher performance over unseen data, thus reducing overall overhead. On the other hand, noise data, mislabelled data, and other outliers could result in a weaker performance and redundant computational overhead. Malicious data in a given dataset, e.g., poisoned data and backdoored data, can mislead the AI systems and result in poisoned models that behave maliciously with adversaries’ manipulations. It is of paramount importance to review and assess novel developments of data synthesis and evaluation for various AI systems in real life to promote higher efficiency and secure AI implementation in both industry and academia. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
