Colloquium: Adversarial Reprogramming Revisited

November 16, 2022. Wednesday. 3PM Room: TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Ranko Lazic Title: Adversarial Reprogramming Revisited Abstract: TL;DR:  We show that neural networks with random weights are susceptible to adversarial reprogramming, and that in some settings training the network can cause its adversarial reprogramming to fail. Adversarial reprogramming, introduced by Elsayed, Goodfellow, and Sohl-Dickstein, […]
