Vulnerability of Deep Networks, by Venkatesh Babu

Deep learning has significantly changed computer vision research. Deep models have achieved state of the art performance in almost all vision tasks. Though Deep models show human level performance across many inference tasks, they are shown to be vulnerable to adversarial noise: small but structured perturbation added to the input that affects the model’s prediction drastically. This talk will briefly outline various ways of crafting such adversarial perturbations.
