Cryptology ePrint Archive: Report 2021/287 - A Deeper Look at Machine Learning-Based Cryptanalysis

#artificialintelligence

In this article, we propose a detailed analysis and thorough explanations of the inherent workings of this new neural distinguisher. First, we studied the classified sets and tried to find some patterns that could guide us to better understand Gohr's results. We show with experiments that the neural distinguisher generally relies on the differential distribution on the ciphertext pairs, but also on the differential distribution in penultimate and antepenultimate rounds. In order to validate our findings, we construct a distinguisher for speck cipher based on pure cryptanalysis, without using any neural network, that achieves basically the same accuracy as Gohr's neural distinguisher and with the same efficiency (therefore improving over previous non-neural based distinguishers).


An AI Was Taught to Play the World's Hardest Video Game and Still Couldn't Set a New Record

#artificialintelligence

What's the hardest video game you've ever played? If it wasn't QWOP then let me tell you right know that you don't know how truly difficult a game can be. The deceptively simple running game is so challenging to master that even an AI trained using machine learning still only mustered a top 10 score instead of shattering the record. If you've never played QWOP before, you owe it to yourself to give it a try and see if you can even get your sprinter off the starting line. Developed by Bennett Foddy back in 2008, QWOP was inspired by an '80s arcade game called Track & Field that requires players to mindlessly mashing buttons to win a race.


New Machine Learning Theory Raises Questions About the Very Nature of Science

#artificialintelligence

A novel computer algorithm, or set of rules, that accurately predicts the orbits of planets in the solar system could be adapted to better predict and control the behavior of the plasma that fuels fusion facilities designed to harvest on Earth the fusion energy that powers the sun and stars. The algorithm, devised by a scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), applies machine learning, the form of artificial intelligence (AI) that learns from experience, to develop the predictions. "Usually in physics, you make observations, create a theory based on those observations, and then use that theory to predict new observations," said PPPL physicist Hong Qin, author of a paper detailing the concept in Scientific Reports. "What I'm doing is replacing this process with a type of black box that can produce accurate predictions without using a traditional theory or law." Qin (pronounced Chin) created a computer program into which he fed data from past observations of the orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and the dwarf planet Ceres.


Training Pattern

#artificialintelligence

With supervised training, the desired inputs and outputs are provided by the trainer. The network then classifies the inputs and compares the resultant outputs against the benchmark outputs. Any errors are back-propagated throughout the system, which forces the network to adjust the various parameter weights. This continuous tweaking process repeats over and over, giving the "deep learning" name to the network.


B-52s again fly over Mideast in US military warning to Iran

Boston Herald

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- A pair of B-52 bombers flew over the Mideast on Sunday, the latest such mission in the region aimed at warning Iran amid tensions between Washington and Tehran. The flight by the two heavy bombers came as a pro-Iran satellite channel based in Beirut broadcast Iranian military drone footage of an Israeli ship hit by a mysterious explosion only days earlier in the Mideast. While the channel sought to say Iran wasn't involved, Israel has blamed Tehran for what it described as an attack on the vessel. The U.S. military's Central Command said the two B-52s flew over the region accompanied by military aircraft from nations including Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It marked the fourth-such bomber deployment into the Mideast this year and the second under President Joe Biden.


Teaching Home Robots

#artificialintelligence

At TRI, our goal is to make breakthrough capabilities in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Despite recent advancements in AI, the large amount of data collection needed to deploy systems in unstructured environments continues to be a burden. Data collection in computer vision can be both quite costly and time-consuming, largely due to the process of annotating. Annotating data is typically done by a team of labelers, who are provided a long list of rules for how to handle different scenarios and what data to collect. For complex systems like a home robot or a self-driving car, these rules must be constantly refined, which creates an expensive feedback loop.
