Adversarial Machine Learning in Real-World Computer Vision Systems

Date: June, 16,2019

Location: Long Beach, CA, USA (co-located with CVPR 2019)

Abstract—As computer vision models are being increasingly deployed in the real world, including applications that require safety considerations such as self-driving cars, it is imperative that these models are robust and secure even when subject to adversarial inputs.

This workshop will focus on recent research and future directions for security problems in real-world machine learning and computer vision systems. We aim to bring together experts from the computer vision, security, and robust learning communities in an attempt to highlight recent work in this area as well as to clarify the foundations of secure machine learning. We seek to come to a consensus on a rigorously framework to formulate adversarial machine learning problems in computer vision, characterize the properties that ensure the security of perceptual models, and evaluate the consequences under various adversarial models. Finally, we hope to chart out important directions for future work and cross-community collaborations, including computer vision, machine learning, security, and multimedia communities.
