We're living in a cyberpunk future:
“Fooling automated surveillance cameras: adversarial patches to attack person detection” https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.08653
Demo of generating adversarial patches against YOLOv2 https://youtu.be/MIbFvK2S9g8
William Gibson (@GreatDismal) wrote of the “ugly T-shirt” in his books, a T-shirt so ugly with pieces of faces on it that the facial recognition in CCTV cameras doesn’t log the data, kind of a backdoor.
“Surveillance cameras can all see it, but then they forget they’ve seen it.”
While printing this pattern on a T-shirt might be good for a fashion item, it’s going to be useless against any system that doesn’t deploy variants of YOLOv2. In the future, your adversarial outfits will also need to be adaptable in real-time.
I would've preferred a less attention-grabbing bag to flash disruptive adversarial images in the wild...
