Code Released: Adversarial Patch Training

The code for our paper on adversarial patch training on location-optimized adversarial patches is now available on GitHub. The repository includes a PyTorch implementation of our adversarial patch attack with location optimization as well as an adversarial training routine. The experiments on Cifar10 and GTSRB presented in the paper can easily be reproduced.

What Lp Adversarial Examples make Sense on Common Vision Datasets?

Adversarial examples are intended to be imperceptible perturbations that cause mis-classification while not changing the true class. Still, there is no consensus on what changes are considered imperceptible or when the true class actually changes — or is not recognizable anymore. In this article, I want to explore what levels of $L_\infty$, $L_0$ and $L_1$ adversarial noise actually make sense on popular computer vision datasets such as MNIST, Fashion-MNIST, SVHN or Cifar10.

ICML Talk “Confidence-Calibrated Adversarial Training”

Confidence-calibrated adversarial training (CCAT) addresses two problems when training on adversarial examples: the lack of robustness against adversarial examples unseen during training, and the reduced (clean) accuracy. In particular, CCAT biases the model towards predicting low-confidence on adversarial examples such that adversarial examples can be rejected by confidence thresholding. In this article, I want to share the slides of the corresponding ICML talk.

ICML Paper “Confidence-Calibrated Adversarial Training”

Our paper on confidence-calibrated adversarial training was accepted at ICML’20. In the revised paper, the proposed confidence-calibrated adversarial training tackles the problem of obtaining robustness that generalizes to attacks not seen during training. This is achieved by biasing the network towards low-confidence predictions on adversarial examples and rejecting these low-confidence examples at test time. This article gives a short abstract and includes paper and code.

ArXiv Pre-Print “On Mitigating Random and Adversarial Bit Errors”

Deep neural network (DNN) accelerators are specialized hardware for inference and have received considerable attention in the past years. Here, in order to reduce energy consumption, these accelerators are often operated at low voltage which causes the included accelerator memory to become unreliable. Additionally, recent work demonstrated attacks targeting individual bits in memory. The induced bit errors in both cases can cause significantly reduced accuracy of DNNs. In this paper, we tackle both random (due to low-voltage) and adversarial bit errors in DNNs. By explicitly taking such errors into account during training, wecan improve robustness significantly.
