Other areas where AI systems are particularly vulnerable include driverless cars and military drones, both of which could be weaponized by hackers if their security were compromised. Realistically, all DNNs need to be resilient to attack or theyre about as useful as a computer without antivirus protection.

Its like a mixed martial arts trainer for AI that assesses a DNNs resilience, teaches it customized defense techniques, and provides a sort of internal anti-virus layer. That last one might not be standard practice in boxing gyms, but its absolutely crucial to DNNs.

Hackers dont necessarily have to rely on you selecting a song from your favorite playlist, they could simply sit across from you on public transportation, or in an office, and pretend to listen to a track themselves, or just play silence with the offending signals embedded.

The toolbox comes in the form of a code library which includes attack agents, defense utilities, and benchmarking tools that allow developers to integrate baked-in resilience to adversarial attacks. The company says its the first of its kind.

According to IBM Security Systems CTO Sridhar Muppidi:

Apple may introduce a triple-camera iPhone soon. Bring it on

IBMtoday announced the launch of its Adversarial Robustness Toolbox for AI developers. The open-source kit contains everything a machine learning programmer needs to attack their own deep learning neural networks (DNN) to ensure theyre able to withstand real-world conditions.

One of the biggest challenges with some of the existing models to defend against adversarial AI is they are very platform specific. The IBM team designed their Adversarial Robustness Toolbox to be platform agnostic. Whether youre coding/developing in Keras or TensorFlow, you can apply the same library to build defenses in.

Adversarial attacks are perpetrated against DNNs by bad actors hoping to disrupt, re-purpose, or deceive an AI. Theyre carried out in a number of ways ranging from physical obfuscation to counter-AI in the form of machine learning attacks against a DNN.

If the idea that AI has to defend itself against an opponent capable of learning isnt scary enough, the potential for danger to humans is absolutely terrifying.

All data collected in the survey is anonymous.

These threats also include spoofing GPS to misdirect vessels, hacking shipboard systems, and disguising vessel IDs in order to fool AI-powered satellites. As more global AI systems come online, the potential for state-sponsored actions against military vessels is also becoming an increasing reality. Last year US Navy leaders found themselves answering questions about a series ofmysterious collisions at sea, and the idea of adversarial systems attacks came up more than once.
