Class-wise mean images of the 10 handwritten digits in the Kannada MNIST dataset


I am disseminating 2 datasets:
Kannada-MNIST dataset: 28X 28 grayscale images: 60k Train | 10k Test

A rant on collective amnesia and faux-ancientization of atrocities


Let’s begin with a simple introduction into the world of adversarial inputs. These are inputs into a machine learning classifier that have been shrewdly perturbed in such a way that these changes are near damn invisible to the naked eye but can fool the machine learning classifier into predicting either…
