Interview of the Twin Archers
 
 
Deakins:
Welcome in the Hall of Fame of BOWS-2 Ep.2 guys! Who are you?
 
Twin Archers:
We are the Twin Archers, two PhD Students working with Mauro Barni from the University of Siena.  
 
Hale:
What are you working on nowadays, when not BOWSing?
 
Twin Archers:
We are working on Watermarking and Signal Processing in Encrypted Domain.
 
Deakins:
Are you connected to other soldiers involved in the BOWS-2 challenge or playing alone?
 
Twin Archers:
Yep, we know Pedro Comesana and Fernando Perez Gonzalez from the University of Vigo (members of the Merry Bowmen).  
 
Deakins;
Do you use sensitivity attacks or just basic weapons?
 
Twin Archers:
Both of them, but we are also investigating some techniques to reduce the computational complexity of a blind attack.
 
Hale:
Do you submit tons of pictures of do you carefully select the best attacks?
 
Twin Archers:
The best ones!
 
Hale:
Which aim was the most difficult to shoot?
 
Twin Archers:
We think "Fall" picture was the toughest one because of its high frequency content.
 
Deakins:
It might be, it might be. What is your opinion about the BOWS contest? Do you think it is useful?
 
Twin Archers:
We learned more with BOWS on Watermarking than with the rest of our classes! ;-)
 
Deakins:
Have you some fun going into combat?
 
Twin Archers:
If we win we would have more fun! ;-p
 
Hale:
Are you completely addicted, watching the site every hour, or are you relax and confident?
 
Twin Archers:
By now, we are relaxed, we are watching the other fighting for the higher places, but we still have to uncover our secret weapon...
We have a question to you Major: since we are not so confident with Python and the way to integrate it into our attack, do you know if there is an alternative way to remotely query your detector?
 
Deakins:
We are here to defend the target and not to help to attack them Twin Archers! But you should ask the other soldiers if they can help you. For example, we know that soldier Westfeld is using R to perform automatically its attacks.
 
Hale and Deakins:
Thanks Twin Archers!
