DescriptionWe design new examples of visual illusions like "The Dress" by finding "adversarial examples" for principled models of human perception — specifically probabilistic models, which treat vision as Bayesian inference. To perform this search efficiently, we design a differentiable probabilistic programming language, exposing MCMC inference as a first-class differentiable function.
