Chapter 10. Adversarial examples

This chapter covers

  • A fascinating research area that precedes GANs and has an interwoven history
  • Deep learning approaches in a computer vision setting
  • Our own adversarial examples with real images and noise

Over the course of this book, you have come to understand GANs as an intuitive concept. However, in 2014, GANs seemed like a massive leap of faith, especially for those unfamiliar with the emerging field of adversarial examples, including Ian Goodfellow’s and others’ work in this field.[1] This chapter dives into adversarial examples—specially constructed examples that make other classification algorithms fail catastrophically.
