Bio-inspired Robustness: A Review [article]

Harshitha Machiraju, Oh-Hyeon Choung, Pascal Frossard, Michael. H Herzog
2021 arXiv   pre-print
However, it is not fully clear whether human vision inspired components increase robustness because performance evaluations of these novel components in DCNNs are often inconclusive.  ...  However, there are currently many shortcomings of DCNNs, which preclude them as a model of human vision.  ...  We have reviewed evaluaIon criteria that could help standardize the evaluaIon for bio-inspired components.  ...
