And yet, AI is easier to trick than people think

From Robust Adversarial Examples

We’ve created images that reliably fool neural network classifiers when viewed from varied scales and perspectives. This challenges a claim from last week that self-driving cars would be hard to trick maliciously since they capture images from multiple scales, angles, perspectives, and the like.

This innocuous kitten photo, printed on a standard color printer, fools the classifier into thinking it’s a monitor or desktop computer regardless of how its zoomed or rotated. We expect further parameter tuning would also remove any human-visible artifacts.
