Why Adversarial Examples Are Such a Dangerous Threat to Deep Learning

Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks are driven by deep learning — machine learning algorithms that get “smarter” with more data. The deepfake, a severe cybersecurity threat, wouldn’t be possible without deep learning. Deepfakes aside, we need to be aware that several machine learning models, including state-of
