Vision-Language Contrastive Models: Generalizing Semantic Segmentation and Studying Model Dynamics

Abstract: This presentation is divided into two interconnected parts, exploring the applications and inner workings of Vision-Language contrastive models, with a focus on CLIP-like architectures. In the first part, we examine the application of these models to semantic segmentation tasks. We begin with a brief overview of our previous work in semantic segmentation and multi-branched … Read more

Benchmarking and Optimizing Gradient-Based Adversarial Attacks for ML Security.

Abstract: Adversarial attacks exploit vulnerabilities in machine learning models by introducing subtle perturbations to input data, leading to incorrect predictions. Rigorous testing of machine learning models against these attacks is often impractical for modern deep learning systems. For these reasons, empirical methods, optimizing adversarial perturbations via gradient descent, are often used to provide robustness evaluations. … Read more
