  4. Google’s Cloud Vision API is Not Robust to Noisewe 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.
  5. Advanced R — Hadley Wickham’s book.
