Citizen Neuroscience, Counter-Drone Techniques, Cloud Vision Illusions, and Advanced R
- Mozak — citizen science neuroscience game. Help us build models of brain cells, and help scientists learn more about the brain through your efforts!
- Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System Techniques — U.S. Army’s advice on dealing with drones.
- Google’s Cloud Vision API is Not Robust to Noise — we show that by adding sufficient noise to the image, the API generates completely different outputs for the noisy image, while a human observer would perceive its original content. We show that the attack is consistently successful by performing extensive experiments on different image types, including natural images, images containing faces, and images with texts.
- Advanced R — Hadley Wickham’s book.
