Vulnerability of Deep Learning

16 Mar 2018  ·  Richard Kenway ·

The Renormalisation Group (RG) provides a framework in which it is possible to assess whether a deep-learning network is sensitive to small changes in the input data and hence prone to error, or susceptible to adversarial attack. Distinct classification outputs are associated with different RG fixed points and sensitivity to small changes in the input data is due to the presence of relevant operators at a fixed point... A numerical scheme, based on Monte Carlo RG ideas, is proposed for identifying the existence of relevant operators and the corresponding directions of greatest sensitivity in the input data. Thus, a trained deep-learning network may be tested for its robustness and, if it is vulnerable to attack, dangerous perturbations of the input data identified. read more
