In the practical scenario, when deploying a self-trained AI model as a service, such as an online image classification API, one may falsely believe it is robust to adversarial examples due to limited access and knowledge about the underlying AI model (aka the “black-box” setting). However, our recent work published at AAAI 2019 shows the robustness due to limited model access is not grounded. We provide a general framework for generating adversarial examples from the targeted AI model using only the model’s input-output responses and few model queries. Compared to the previous work (ZOO attack), our proposed framework, called AutoZOOM, reduces at least 93% model queries in average while achieving similar attacking performance, providing a query-efficient methodology for evaluating adversarial robustness of AI systems with limited access. An illustrating example is shown in Figure 1, where an adversarial bagel image generated from a black-box image classifier will be classified as the attack target “grand piano”. This paper is selected for oral presentation (January 29, 11:30-12:30 pm @ coral 1) and poster presentation (January 29, 6:30-8:30 pm) at AAAI 2019.In the white-box setting, adversarial examples are often crafted by leveraging the gradient of a designed attack objective relative to the data input for the guidance of adversarial perturbation, which requires knowing the model architecture as well as the model weights for inference. However, in the black-box setting acquiring the gradient is infeasible due to limited access to these model details. Instead, an adversary can only access to the input-output responses of the deployed AI model, just like regular users (e.g., upload an image and receive the prediction from an online image classification API). It was first shown in the ZOO attack that generating adversarial examples from models with limited access is possible by using gradient estimation techniques. However, it may take a huge amount of model queries to craft an adversarial example. For example, in Figure 1, ZOO attack takes more than 1 million model queries to find the adversarial bagel image. To accelerate the query efficiency in finding adversarial examples in the black-box setting, our proposed AutoZOOM framework has two novel building blocks: (i) an adaptive random gradient estimation strategy to balance query counts and distortion, and (ii) an autoencoder that is either trained offline with unlabeled data or a bilinear resizing operation for acceleration. For (i), AutoZOOM features an optimized and query-efficient gradient estimator, which has an adaptive scheme that uses few queries to find the first successful adversarial perturbation and then uses more queries to fine-tune the distortion and make the adversarial example more realistic. For (ii), as shown in Figure 2, AutoZOOM implements a technique called “dimension reduction” to reduce the complexity of finding adversarial examples. The dimension reduction can be realized by an offline trained autoencoder to capture data characteristics or a simple bilinear image resizer which does not require any training.

Recent studies have identified the lack of robustness in current AI models against adversarial examples—intentionally manipulated prediction-evasive data inputs that are similar to normal data but will cause well-trained AI models to misbehave. For instance, visually imperceptible perturbations to a stop sign can be easily crafted and lead a high-precision AI model towards misclassification. In our previous paper published at the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) in 2018, we validated that 18 different classification models trained on ImageNet, a large public object recognition dataset, are all vulnerable to adversarial perturbations.

On ImageNet, this drastic reduction means millions of fewer model queries, rendering AutoZOOM an efficient and practical tool for evaluating adversarial robustness of AI models with limited access. Moreover, AutoZOOM is a general query redemption accelerator that can readily apply to different methods for generating adversarial examples in the practical black-box setting.last_img read more

Holographic 3D coach to help healthy living

first_img Credit: Rick Uilkema, DesignLab At first glance, the prototype of the HoloProjector could be described as a pyramid-shaped aquarium. At its core is hologram, a 3-D illusion. Whereas a hologram is often used for entertainment, this design represents a serious purpose. “The HoloProjector is a showcase for virtual applications and moreover, an opportunity to study the effect of innovative coaching via hologram technology,” says Hermie Hermens, professor and figurehead of the research programme Personalized eHealth Technology of the University of Twente.The commissioning authority for the project—Council of Coaches—is examining how it could utilise several coaches for personal advice on healthy living and wellbeing. The HoloProjector can display one of these coaches, or the group of coaches engaging in discussion. The user can walk around the hologram and listen to the different coaches’ views. People interact with their ‘holo-coaches’ via buttons, sounds and various interfaces.How can the HoloProjector be used? Researcher Reidsma says the HoloProjector offers opportunities to “provide further insight into the study of virtual coaches.” Programme manager Tabak adds: “The HoloProjector allows us to test the effectiveness of hologram coaching. We feel it is more akin to a ‘real’ coach in terms of interaction, compared to standard coaching apps or telephone coaching, for example. As such, this HoloProjector will play a role in further eHealth research, in which we focus on treatment methods in home settings.”Student project leader Denisa-Valentina Licu—on behalf of the DreamTeam responsible for the hardware, at DesignLab—predicts even more possibilities: “This HoloProjector can display all sorts of content: from one person to elaborate scenes. I foresee additional advantages in more wide-ranging applicability: this is useful from advertising to health, and entertainment to research.” Citation: Holographic 3-D coach to help healthy living (2019, March 12) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-holographic-d-healthy.html Explore further Credit: Rick Uilkema, DesignLab A 3-D hologram projection of a coach, to support physical and mental wellbeing: over the last few months, DesignLab has been working on the design and hardware for a prototype HoloProjector for virtual coaches, together with researchers Hermie Hermens, Dennis Reidsma and programme manager Monique Tabak of the University of Twente.

Samsung Electronics flags 60 slump in Q1 operating profit

first_img Samsung Electronics Q4 profits slump along with global demand The world’s biggest smartphone and memory chip maker Samsung Electronics warned Friday of a more than 60 percent plunge in first-quarter operating profits in the face of weakening markets. Citation: Samsung Electronics flags 60% slump in Q1 operating profit (2019, April 5) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-04-samsung-electronics-flags-slump-q1.html Samsung is launching its top-end S10 5G smartphone Friday, after South Korea this week won the global race to commercially launch the world’s first nationwide 5G networks Explore further DRAM chips, used in computer servers, fell by similar levels, it added.Rival phone maker LG Electronics also predicted an operating profit for the first quarter Friday, forecasting it would drop 18.8 percent to 900 billion won.Bendable smartphonesSamsung’s earnings estimate was below analyst forecasts of 6.9 trillion won, according to Bloomberg News.It would represent the firm’s lowest operating profit since the third quarter of 2016, and comes after it reported its first fall in quarterly profit for two years in January.Samsung shares closed down 0.2 percent. Markets have been buoyed in recent weeks by optimism over China-US trade talks and positive Chinese factory data.South Korean semiconductor exports also rose for the first time in six months in March, according to government figures.Samsung is also set to release the world’s first bendable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold.CLSA’s Rana predicted a “slight” rebound in the April to June period, saying: “This quarter is the bottom in terms of earnings.”Samsung Electronics once had a 20 percent market share of China’s smartphone market but has seen that tumble to less than one percent.Its reputation suffered a major blow after a damaging worldwide recall of its Galaxy Note 7 devices over exploding batteries in 2016, which cost the firm billions of dollars and shattered its global brand image.It took another hit after the bribery conviction of Lee Jae-yong—the son and heir of the group’s ailing current chairman Lee Kun-hee.The 50-year-old scion was a key figure in the scandal that ousted former South Korean president Park Geun-hye following nationwide street protests, and was sentenced to five years in jail.But he was released in February last year after several of his convictions were quashed on appeal.Samsung withholds net profit and sector-by-sector business performance data until it releases its final earnings report, which is expected later this month. © 2019 AFP Operating profits for January to March would be “approximately 6.2 trillion won”, the firm said in a statement, down 60.4 percent on-year.Sales were about 52 trillion won, it said, marking a 14 percent drop.The firm is the flagship subsidiary of the giant Samsung Group, by far the biggest of the family-controlled conglomerates that dominate business in the world’s 11th-largest economy, and it is crucial to South Korea’s economic health. It has enjoyed record profits in recent years despite a series of setbacks, including a humiliating recall and the jailing of its de facto chief.But now the picture has changed, with chip prices falling as global supply increases and demand weakens.Samsung Electronics warned investors last week to expect weak operating profits, citing “unfavourable market conditions” for displays and memory chips.”Amid weak demand for memory business, a drop in price for signature products is expected,” it said then.”The company will seek to improve cost competitiveness through effective resource management,” it added, “while enhancing product quality in the short term”.Samsung was also launching the 5G version of its top-end Galaxy S10 smartphone Friday—the first such device available anywhere—after South Korea this week won the global race to commercially launch the world’s first nationwide 5G networks.But the company has to contend with increasingly tough competition in the smartphone market from Chinese rivals such as Huawei—which in 2017 surpassed Apple to take second place—offering quality devices at lower prices.Samsung supplies components to other manufacturers such as Apple as well as making its own devices.But market prices for liquid crystal displays have fallen 10 percent quarter-on-quarter, said Sanjeev Rana, an analyst at investment firm CLSA, while demand for smartphones in China—the world’s biggest market—has been weak.Prices for NAND memory—used in smartphones and other devices—fell 20 percent in the first quarter, according to market tracker DRAMeXchange, which pointed the finger at consumers taking longer to replace their smartphones, and lower-than-expected sales for Apple’s new devices.

Explore furthercenter_img © 2019 AFP The US regulator, as part of an internal review, has preliminarily concluded that FAA officials largely deferred to Boeing’s assessments of the accident-ridden 737 MAX during the certification process, the person said.Boeing’s top-selling 737 MAX narrow-body planes have been grounded globally since mid-March following two plane crashes that killed 346 people. A common link in both crashes was the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System. During the FAA certification, Boeing did not flag to regulators that a failure of the MCAS could lead to a catastrophic event, a classification that would have triggered more regulatory scrutiny, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.The FAA approved the 737 MAX in early 2017 and the plane entered into service in May of that year.In both the Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October and the Ethiopian Airlines crash in March, the MCAS pointed the plane sharply downward based on a faulty sensor reading, hindering pilot control after takeoff, according to preliminary crash investigations.The FAA’s internal review did not conclude that Boeing intentionally misled the agency, the source told AFP.Rather, the agency concluded that further review was not needed of the MCAS because the FAA itself concluded the system did not affect the trajectory of the plane.”The change to MCAS didn’t trigger an additional safety assessment because it did not affect the most critical phase of flight, considered to be higher cruise speeds. At lower speeds, greater control movements are often necessary,” an FAA spokesman said.Boeing did not immediately respond to AFP requests for comments.Acting FAA head Daniel Elwell is expected to face tough questioning on Boeing at a congressional hearing on Wednesday. At a prior hearing, lawmakers criticized the agency for being too cozy with Boeing and questioned why the agency was the last major regulator to ground the 737 MAX after other bodies took action. Besides the FAA’s internal review, the Boeing 737 MAX is the subject of numerous probes, including a criminal investigation by the Department of Justice.American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, two US carriers that fly the 737 MAX, were subpoenaed by the US DOJ in November, said two people familiar with the matter.

See Who WonTop 10 Best Meal DeliveryUndo In animals, neurobiology refers to the biological mechanisms through which a nervous system regulates behavior, according to Harvard University’s Mind Brain Behavior Interfaculty Initiative. Over millions of years, brains in diverse animal species have evolved to produce behaviors that experts identify as intelligent: Among them are reasoning and problem-solving, tool use and self-recognition. Beginning in 2006, some scientists have argued that plants possess neuron-like cells that interact with hormones and neurotransmitters, forming “a plant nervous system, analogous to that in animals,” said lead study author Lincoln Taiz, a professor emeritus of molecular, cell and developmental biology at the University of California Santa Cruz. “They even claimed that plants have ‘brain-like command centers’ at their root tips,” Taiz told Live Science in an email. This perspective makes sense if you simplify the workings of a complex brain, reducing it to an array of electrical pulses; cells in plants also communicate through electrical signals, according to the article. However, the signaling in a plant is only superficially similar to the billions of synapses firing in a complex animal brain, which is more than “a mass of cells that communicate by electricity,” Taiz said. “For consciousness to evolve, a brain with a threshold level of complexity and capacity is required,” he added. Other researchers who recently investigated the neuroscience of consciousness — awareness of one’s world and a sense of self — found that in animals, only vertebrates, arthropods and cephalopods had brains complex enough to enable them to be conscious. “If the lower animals — which have nervous systems — lack consciousness, the chances that plants without nervous systems have consciousness are effectively nil,” Taiz said. And what’s so great about consciousness, anyway? Plants can’t run away from danger, so investing energy in a body system that recognizes a threat and can feel pain would be a very poor evolutionary strategy, according to the article. “Being conscious may seem like harmless fun for plants being cared for in a garden, but imagine, for example, the plight of trees during a forest fire. I would not wish to inflict on trees the consciousness and pain of being burned alive,” Taiz said in the email. “Being unconscious is in all likelihood an advantage to plants and contributes to their evolutionary fitness,” he added. The findings were published online July 3 in the journal Trends in Plant Science. Image Gallery: Carnivorous Plants in Action In Photos: Plants in Danger of Disappearingcenter_img A tree falls in the woods; but whether or not anyone hears it, the tree has no regrets. Nor does it experience fear, anger, relief or sadness as it topples to the ground. Trees — and all plants, for that matter — feel nothing at all, because consciousness, emotions and cognition are hallmarks of animals alone, scientists recently reported in an opinion article. The idea that plants have some degree of consciousness first took root in the early 2000s; the term “plant neurobiology” was coined around the notion that some aspects of plant behavior could be compared to intelligence in animals. Though plants lack brains, the firing of electrical signals in their stems and leaves nonetheless triggered responses that hinted at consciousness, researchers previously reported. But such an idea is bunk, according to the authors of the new article. Plant biology is complex and fascinating, but it differs so greatly from that of animals that so-called evidence of plants’ intelligence is intriguing but inconclusive, the scientists wrote.

PM seeks list of truant mantris who skipped House roster duty

first_imgNEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday took strong view of ministers skipping roster duty in Parliament and sought details of the absentees by the evening while cautioning that truancy might have consequences. “I know how to handle them,” a source quoted an upset PM as saying at the weekly meeting of BJP’s parliamentary party. Modi also said appraisal of ministers would take into account their engagement with Parliament. “I have received phone calls even from some of the opposition party leaders about absence of the ministers. We rank ministers based on a broader criteria which includes attention to parliament duty,” he said. “Give me the list of the absent ministers…I know how to handle them. Cognisance will be taken,” another attendee quoted Modi as telling parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi. The warning was prompted by two ministers, one belonging to BJP and another representing an ally, not reporting for their roster duty. This was the second time this month when Modi had used the platform of the parliamentary party to express annoyance with his colleagues staying away from Parliament. Earlier, he had expressed displeasure over MPs not attending the sessions. Besides, he had also said recently said that the members should take parliamentary committees seriously. Absenteeism among its MPs had dogged BJP since Modi’s first stint as PM, causing embarrassment to government on many occasions. Thought the lawmakers swear by Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, they have not heeded the exhortation — a streak which has persisted through the opening spell of the new government. “PM has reiterated that attendance is compulsory in the House and there is no exception to this,” Joshi said after the meeting. Joshi said Modi asked MPs to nurse their constituencies by playing a leading role in its development and advised them to take up a cause of human sensitivity like eradication of leprosy or tuberculosis and water conservation. “First impression is often the last impression,” Modi told the MPs as he asked them to work passionately for the development of their areas. Joshi said the PM also noted that India has fixed a deadline of 2025 for eradicating TB against the global deadline of 2030 and asked MPs to work for its removal. He referred to aspirational districts, an official term for underdeveloped districts, and asked them to coordinate with authorities to boost their progress. Modi also said the ongoing session can be extended if it is necessary to pass the government’s legislative agenda.

Turkey begins receiving Russian missiles in challenge to US and NATO

first_img World 10h ago Trump to discuss immigration with Guatemalan president at White House on Monday Related News {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Washington has opposed Turkey’s purchase, saying Russian military hardware is not compatible with NATO systems and that the acquisition may lead to Turkey’s expulsion from an F-35 fighter jet programme. Investors in Turkey have been unsettled by the deal. The Turkish lira weakened as much as 1.6% to 5.7780 against the dollar, before recovering somewhat, after the ministry announced the arrival of the S-400 consignment. The main Istanbul share index <.XU100> fell 2.13%.Turkish broadcasters showed footage of huge Russian Air Force AN-124 cargo planes offloading equipment at the air base. “Today three cargo planes arrived,” Defence Minister Hulusi Akar told state-owned Anadolu news agency, adding that deliveries would continue in coming days. A second delivery by air will take place soon, Russia’s TASS news agency quoted an unnamed military-diplomatic source as saying. A third delivery – of 120 guided missiles – will be carried out by ship at the end of the summer, the source said.Twenty Turkish servicemen received training from Russia in May-June and 80 more Turkish servicemen will receive training to use the S-400 system, the source was quoted as saying.”We are aware of Turkey taking delivery of the S-400, our position regarding the F-35 has not changed,” Esper told reporters earlier in the day and said there will be “more to follow” after he spoke with his Turkish counterpart. But the Pentagon then cancelled a planned news briefing on Turkey. “Minister Akar told his U.S. counterpart that Turkey remains under a serious air and missile threat and that purchase of S-400 defence systems was not an option but rather a necessity,” the Turkish defence ministry said about the phone call, adding that Ankara was still assessing acquiring U.S. Patriot missiles. ERDOGAN-TRUMP TALKSTurkey says the system is a strategic defence requirement, particularly to secure its southern borders with Syria and Iraq. It says that when it made the deal with Russia for the S-400s, the United States and Europe had not presented a viable alternative. President Tayyip Erdogan said after meeting President Donald Trump at a G20 summit last month that the United States did not plan to impose sanctions on Ankara for buying the S-400s. Trump said Turkey had not been treated fairly but did not rule out sanctions, and U.S. officials said last week the administration still plans to act.There has been bipartisan opposition in the U.S. Congress to Turkey’s purchase and the reaction from lawmakers have been more stern, calling the State Department and Pentagon to remove Turkey from the F-35 programme. “President Erdogan was given a very clear choice. Unfortunately, he has clearly made the wrong one,” a statement from House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee said.Under legislation known as Countering America’s Adversaries through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which targets purchases of military equipment from Russia, Trump should select five of 12 possible measures.These range from banning visas and denying access to the U.S.-based Export-Import Bank, to the harsher options of blocking transactions with the U.S. financial system and denying export licences.Washington says the S-400s could compromise its Lockheed Martin F-35 stealth fighter jets, an aircraft Turkey is helping to build and planning to buy.Turkey could also face expulsion from the F-35 programme under the sanctions. Erdogan has dismissed that possibility, but Washington has already started the process of removing Turkey from the programme, halting training of Turkish pilots in the United States on the aircraft.Investors in Turkey have been concerned about the impact of potential U.S. sanctions on an economy which fell into recession after a currency crisis last year.Turkey’s dollar bonds dropped to three-week lows on the news of the delivery, while the cost of insuring exposure to Turkish sovereign debt also rose.Fitch ratings downgraded Turkey’s sovereign rating to ‘BB-‘ on Friday and said it remained vulnerable to deterioration of ties with the U.S. and added that while any U.S. sanctions on Turkey might have minimal direct economic effect, warned that their impact on sentiment could be significant.The S-400 acquisition is one of several issues which have frayed ties between the two allies, including a dispute over strategy in Syria east of the Euphrates River, where the United States is allied with Kurdish forces that Turkey views as foes.The detention of U.S. consular staff in Turkey has also strained relations, along with disagreements over Iran, Venezuela and Middle East policy. Turkey has long demanded Washington hand over a Muslim cleric who Ankara holds responsible for an attempted coup in 2016.
