Machine Learning (ML) has become a standard tool for malware research in the academic security
community: it has been used in a wide range of domains including Windows, PDF and Android
malware, but also of malicious JavaScript and URLs. In this seminar, I will present an overview of the
most successful approaches for Android malware detection, focusing on intuitions on how program
analysis techniques can be useful in this context. Then, I will discuss the main challenges and pitfalls to
overcome for widespread of ML-based approaches in industry contexts.
