Towards One Shot Search Space Poisoning in Neural Architecture Search (Student Abstract)

Nayan Saxena, Robert Wu, Rohan Jain
2022 AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We evaluate the robustness of a Neural Architecture Search (NAS) algorithm known as Efficient NAS (ENAS) against data agnostic poisoning attacks on the original search space with carefully designed ineffective operations. We empirically demonstrate how our one shot search space poisoning approach exploits design flaws in the ENAS controller to degrade predictive performance on classification tasks. With just two poisoning operations injected into the search space, we inflate prediction error
