In this project, we will build unique cyber-attacks targeting systems that will be based on artificial intelligence (AI) approaches, as well as effective and efficient cyber-attack defense strategies. In order to study adversarial examples targeting various machine learning and deep learning algorithms applied for various systems, such as computer vision, smart voice recognition, the Internet of Things, autonomous and intelligent vehicles, and so on, the concept of adversarial machine learning has been proposed.
