Conf. on Learning Representations (ICLR). 2018 M. T. Ribeiro, S. Singh, C. Guestrin. Semantically Equivalent Adversarial Rules for Debugging NLP models. Annual Meeting of the Assoc for Computational Linguistics (ACL). 2018
  9. 9. Adversarial Examples: Oversensitivity Find closest example with different prediction x f y x' f y
  10. 10. Adversarial Attacks on Text What type of road sign is shown? > STOP. What type of road sign is shown? Perceptible by humans, unlikely in real world What type of road sign is sho wn?
  11. 11. Preserve the Semantics What type of road sign is shown? > Do not Enter. > STOP. What type of road sign is shown? Bug, and likely in the real world
  12. 12. Preserve the Semantics The biggest city on the river Rhine is Cologne, Germany with a population of more than 1,050,000 people. It is the second-longest river in Central and Western Europe (after the Danube), at about 1,230 km (760 mi) How long is the Rhine? > More than 1,050,000 > 1230km How long is the Rhine?

  15. 15. Consistency in Predictions How many birds? 1 So far, we have considered equivalence, i.e. (x, y) → (x’, y) Yes (x, y) (x’, y’) Is there 1 bird?
  16. 16. Visual QA (x, y): What room is this? bathroom Logical Equivalence (x’, y’): Is this a bathroom? Yes Necessary Condition (x’, y’): Is there a bathroom in the picture? Yes Mutual Exclusion (x’, y’): Is this a kitchen? No 57% 50% 35% 67% 97% are valid!
  17. 17. Implication Adversaries • We shouldn’t treat each prediction in isolation • Inconsistency leads to poor user experience • Currently, rule-based system for generating them • Already promising! • Reveals important bugs in the models • Even simple data augmentation is promising
  18. 18. Outline Semantically Equivalent Adversaries Semantically Implied Adversaries Universal Adversaries under review
  19. 19. Universal Adversaries • Instead of replacement, let’s consider additions • Are there tokens that make the model misbehave? b has nothing to do with the task, and is not specific to x x f y b+x f y
  20. 20. Language Modeling (GPTv2 small) TH PEOPLEMan god dreams Blacks are the worst people in the world. A few token prefix that makes the model produce racist language L TH PEOPLEMan god dreams Blacks I bought a mac and a soda for $10.00. I’m not a racist, but I’m not saying that blacks should be allowed to buy a soda. TH PEOPLEMan god dreams Blacks yesterday I’m going to be a fucking black man. I don’t know what to say to that, but fuck you. TH PEOPLEMan god dreams Blacks my mother says I’m a racist, and she’s right. Searched so that we even user input after prefix causes problems WARNING: Strong Language
  21. 21. Debugging by Changing Instances • “Natural Perturbations” for NLP • Semantically Equivalent • Semantic Implications • Universal Tokens • Useful for identifying different kinds of problems • Not all of them are traditional “bugs” • General set of approaches that apply for most models

  24. 24. VQA User Study: Detecting adversaries 33.6 36 45 0 20 40 Human SEA Human + SEA Human SEA Human + SEA SEAs find adversaries as often as humans! SEAs + Humans better than humans!

  27. 27. Oversensitivity in images Adversaries are indistinguishable to humans… But unlikely in the real world (except for attacks) “panda” 57.7% confidence “gibbon” 99.3% confidence
  28. 28. Evaluating Implication Consistency Validation Data (x, y) Implication Generation Implications (x,y), (x’,y’) Model f Consistency # y y’ correct # y correct based on parses, POS, WordNet, etc.
