MATSuMoTo: The MATLAB Surrogate Model Toolbox For Computationally Expensive Black-Box Global Optimization Problems [article]

Juliane Mueller
2014 arXiv   pre-print
MATSuMoTo is the MATLAB Surrogate Model Toolbox for computationally expensive, black-box, global optimization problems that may have continuous, mixed-integer, or pure integer variables.  ...  The multimodality of the expensive black-box function requires an algorithm that is able to search locally as well as globally. MATSuMoTo is able to address these challenges.  ...  Thus, for black-box optimization problems for which it is not known how many local and global optima exist, it is necessary to use a global optimization algorithm that is able to continue the search globally  ...

2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present AdversarialPSO, a black-box attack that uses fewer queries to create adversarial examples with high success rates.  ...  For black-box attacks, the only capability available to the attacker is the ability to query the target with specially crafted inputs and observing the labels returned by the model.  ...  As both attacks require knowledge of model internals-information that is not available in a black-box setting-the authors resort to a local white-box surrogate that approximates the black-box target.  ...
