Sample z∈{0,1}n uniformly, and let x=(\epsg(z),z)∈\Rn+1. Thus, for any linear classifier fw we have. (for example, humans). Any classifier running in time ≤2O(n) has Further, the simple classifier that minimizes adversarial-loss has very high standard-loss. Every simple classifier f∈F is not adversarially robust; it has high adversarial loss w.r.t ℓ∞ perturbations. Moreover, adaptive evaluations are highly customized for particular models, which makes it difficult to compare different defenses. For all \eps∈(0.01,1), the distribution D1 of Construction 1 satisfies the following properties. [6] proposed Hypothesis (A), observing that adversarial-loss has larger generalization error than standard-loss in practice. Define x=(α,β)∈[0,1]4n and y∈{0,1} as: For all functions g:{0,1}n→{0,1} that are (s(n),δ(n))-average-case hard, and define Dg,\eps as the following distribution over (x,y). I don't think this is true in practice -- image classes are probably some small part of a low-dimentional manifold), Title:Adversarial Robustness May Be at Odds With Simplicity. in some sense actually solve the problem. share, Why are classifiers in high dimension vulnerable to "adversarial" 1, 2 Training for faster adversarial robustness verification via inducing relu stability Jan 2018 robust classification may be exponentially more complex than standard classification.

Why are classifiers in high dimension vulnerable to "adversarial" Moreover, the linear classifier of (1) is robust to random ℓ∞ noise of order \eps, but just not to adversarial perturbation. The Generic Holdout: Preventing False-Discoveries in Adaptive Data Science Preetum Nakkiran, Jarosław Błasiok … A robust classifier, however, cannot “cheat” using this feature, and has to the event {(αi−αi+1) mod[0,1]≥2\eps} ∙ In this work, we provide a different perspective to this coupling, and provide a method, Saliency based Adversarial training (SAT), to use saliency maps to improve adversarial robustness of a model. \Ez∼D′[⟨w,z⟩]=\E[z1]∑iwi<\E[zi]||w||1, the distribution Dg,\eps of Construction 2 satisfies the following properties. Specifically, even though training models to be adversarially robust can be beneficial in the regime of limited training data, in general, there can be an inherent trade-off between the standard accuracy and adversarially robust accuracy of a model. Let the set of “simple” classifiers F be Linear Threshold Functions, of the form Dimitris Tsipras, Shibani Santurkar, Logan Engstrom, Alexander Turner, and [2, 3] propose Hypothesis (B), and give a theoretical example of a learning task where learning a robust classifier is not possible in polynomial time (under standard cryptographic assumptions). Adversarial robustness is a measurement of a model’s susceptibility to adversarial examples. Sample y∼{+1,−1} uniformly, and sample each coordinate of x∈\Rn ∙ For property (1): The bound on standard loss follows directly from the encoding. The common case K < D is very similar but involves more complex notations for matrix truncation. The sum ∑ixi above, for example, concentrates around ±0.01n but can be perturbed by \epsn=n/2 by an ℓ∞. More generally, we show. 0 ∙ "Adversarial robustness may be at odds with simplicity". Towards explaining this gap, we highlight the hypothesis that $\textit{robust classification may require more complex classifiers (i.e. ∙ The silver lining: adversarial training induces more semantically meaningful gradients and gives adversarial examples with GAN-like trajectories: General overview.

[Average-Case Hard] able to learn non-robust classifiers with very high accuracy, even in the rounds its argument to {±1}. I think what you are describing may be an effect of using gradient-based adversarial attacks. By Azuma-Hoeffding as in the proof of Theorem 2.1, the adversarial-success is upper-bounded by: where δ=(\eps−0.01)2≥Ω(1). 12/16/2019 ∙ by Grzegorz Głuch, et al. As described in [1][2], the gradients (saliency maps) of more adversarially robust network are more structured than in the case of undefended (i.e.highly non-robust) networks. Manuscript.
