Stronger neural networks: a method of not deceiving artificial intelligence

A modification imperceptible to the human eye can deceive sophisticated artificial intelligences by forcing them to make classification mistakes that a human being would never make, such as confusing a bus with an ostrich. A significant safety issue when it comes to applying deep learning, deep neural networks, to tools like self-driving cars.
A team of researchers and professors from the University of Trieste, Scuola Internazionale di Studi Superiori e Avanzati - SISSA and Oxford University, has nevertheless succeeded in showing a new way to make these neural networks more robust and difficult to deceive.
