Do adversarial samples violate the i.i.d. assumption?

I am trying to understand why adversarial attacks work in theory. I have read, that the image is perturbed by a special perturbation $X_{adv}=X_1+p$, but i can't find any reference on that ...

Does deep RL techniques only interested in 'unit transitions' rather than 'whole experience'?

In deep-rl techniques, if I understand correctly, a replay buffer is used in training the neural networks. The purpose of using the replay buffer is to store the experience and send a (sampled) batch ...

Does it make sense to compare images (samples) with words (features)?

Consider the following paragraphs from the introduction of the chapter named Recurrent Neural Networks from the textbook titled Dive into Deep Learning So far we encountered two types of data: ...

Which of the following probability distribution is generating an iid dataset?

Let $X_1, X_2$ be two discrete random variables. Each random variable takes two values: $1, 2$ The probability distribution $p_1$ over $X_1, X_2$ is given by $$p_1(X_1=1, X_2 = 1) = \dfrac{1}{4}$$ ...

What are the different possible usages of the word "i.i.d" in machine learning?

The acronym "iid" stands for "independent and identically distributed". It is a property of a sequence of random variables. You can read here for more details. This question is ...

What are the iid random variables for a dataset in the GAN framework?

I am trying to understand why mean is used for expectation in training Generative Adversarial Networks. The answer tells that it is due to the law of large numbers which is based on the assumption ...

Why exactly do neural networks require i.i.d. data?

In reinforcement learning, successive states (actions and rewards) can be correlated. An experience replay buffer was used, in the DQN architecture, to avoid training the neural network (NN), which ...

If the i.i.d. assumption holds, shouldn't the training and validation trends be exactly the same?

If the i.i.d. (independent and identically distributed) assumption holds for a training-validation set pair, shouldn't their loss trends be exactly the same, since every batch from the validation set ...
