Simultaneous Adversarial Training - Learn from Others Mistakes
Adversarial examples are maliciously tweaked images that can easily fool
machine learning techniques, such as neural networks, but they are normally not
visually distinguishable for human beings. One of the main approaches to solve
this problem is to retrain the networks using those adversarial examples,
namely adversarial training. However, standard adversarial training might not
actually change the decision boundaries but cause the problem of gradient
masking, resulting in a weaker ability to generate adversarial examples.
Therefore, it cannot alleviate the problem of black-box attacks, where
adversarial examples generated from other networks can transfer to the targeted
one. In order to reduce the problem of black-box attacks, we propose a novel
method that allows two networks to learn from each others' adversarial examples
and become resilient to black-box attacks. We also combine this method with a
simple domain adaptation to further improve the performance.
