To compress or not to compress: Understanding the Interactions between Adversarial Attacks and Neural Network Compression

29 Sep 2018  ·  Yiren Zhao, Ilia Shumailov, Robert Mullins, Ross Anderson ·

As deep neural networks (DNNs) become widely used, pruned and quantised models are becoming ubiquitous on edge devices; such compressed DNNs are popular for lowering computational requirements. Meanwhile, recent studies show that adversarial samples can be effective at making DNNs misclassify... We, therefore, investigate the extent to which adversarial samples are transferable between uncompressed and compressed DNNs. We find that adversarial samples remain transferable for both pruned and quantised models. For pruning, the adversarial samples generated from heavily pruned models remain effective on uncompressed models. For quantisation, we find the transferability of adversarial samples is highly sensitive to integer precision. read more
