With recent developments of convolutional neural net-works, deep learning for 3D point clouds has shown significant progress in various 3D scene understanding tasks, e.g., object recognition, semantic segmentation. In a safety-critical environment, it is however not well understood how such deep learning models are vulnerable to adversarial examples. In this work, we explore adversarial attacks for point cloud-based neural networks. We propose a unified formulation for adversarial point cloud…

Explainability-Aware One Point Attack for Point Cloud Neural Networks

This work proposes two new attack methods: one-point attack (OPA) and critical traverse attack (CTA), which go in the opposite direction: the authors restrict the perturbation dimensions to a human cognizable range with the help of explainability methods, which enables the working principle or decision boundary of the models to be comprehensible through the observable perturbations magnitude.
