Researchers Have Successfully Tricked A.I. Into Seeing The Wrong Things

Artificial intelligence lets us offload tasks onto machines—they’re beginning to tag our photos, drive our cars, and fly our drones. These A.I. systems occasionally make wrong decisions while doing these things, as speculated in the recent Tesla Autopilot crash or mishearing a voice command, but new research suggests that hackers with experience in A.I. could force these algorithms to make wrong and potentially harmful decisions. Researchers took the first step in validating these real-world attacks when they forced an A.I. algorithm to misidentify images, up to 97 percent of the time, in pictures taken with a smartphone. Changes to the images, printed on paper and photographed with a smartphone in the experiment, are invisible to human eye, but outside the lab the difference could be between a self-driving car seeing…
