Attackability Evaluation of Machine Learning Models with Categorical Input

July 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

ABSTRACT: Despite fruitful progress of evasion attacks on continuous data, such as images and videos, how to design adversarial examples for discrete data remains a rarely investigated, but important research problem. Our work echoes the challenges by proposing the attackability measurement of white-box evasion attacks against non-linear classifiers, such as deep neural nets, on discrete data with submodularity theory. Furthermore, we propose an efficient, yet provably powerful heuristic search method for evasion attacks with discrete input.


BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Yufei Han has received his Ph.D of Engineering at National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, CASIA, China (2010). He is now a senior research scientist at INRIA France since 2021. Before that, Yufei worked as post-doctoral research fellow at INRIA (2010-2014)  Saclay and senior principal researcher at Symantec Research Labs (2015-2021) at Sophia Antipolis, France. His research interests include robust machine learning with imperfect security data, analysis of adversarial vulnerability of machine learning approaches and privacy-preserving distributed machine learning. He has served as PC and SPC for numerous conferences, including ICML, ICLR, NeurIPS, IJCAI and AAAI, and reviewers for prestigious journals, such as IEEE TDSC and IEEE TNNLS. He has authored over 50 research publications on top-tiered machine learning and cyber security conferences. He has also filed 27 US patents, 12 of which have been already granted.
