Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is a relatively new discipline, growing out of computer science, statistics, and various engineering specialties. It has become ubiquitous to the way our modern world is developing. From driving trading decisions on Wall Street and managing utilities networks, to embedded voice recognition interaction with smartphones and IoT devices, AI/ML techniques are reimagining our world.
The trust placed in such software models - and the systems they manage - is a magnet to those wishing to profit from doing harm. Adversarial attacks are well known on ML systems, particularly Machine Vision, but if models can be modified externally without poisoning training data, the risk may be more insidious.
Risk of this software being attacked is the same as any application of any kind on any platform. Valuable embedded or desktop AI/ML intellectual property is as much at risk of being pirated as any content or CAM software. And such exfiltration is made even easier by the lack of awareness.
