DescriptionNeural Architecture Search (NAS) algorithms aim at finding high accurate Deep Neural Network (DNN) architectures for a given application. However, DNNs are computationally-complex as well as vulnerable to adversarial attacks. Towards this, we propose RoHNAS, a novel NAS framework that jointly optimizes for the adversarial-robustness and hardware-efficiency of DNNs executed on specialized hardware accelerators. RoHNAS additionally accounts for complex types of DNNs such as Capsule Networks. RoHNAS analyzes and selects values of adversarial perturbation for each dataset to employ in the NAS. Our evaluations provide a set of Pareto-optimal solutions, leveraging the tradeoff between the above-discussed design objectives.
