Testing Large Language Model (LLM) Vulnerabilities Using Adversarial Attacks

Adversarial analysis seeks to explain a machine learning model by understanding locally what changes need to be made to the input to change a model’s outcome. Depending on the context, adversarial results could be used as attacks, in which a change is made to trick a model into reaching a different outcome. Or they could be used as an exp...
