In spite of the successful application in many fields, machine learning algorithms today suffer from notorious problems like vulnerability to adversarial examples. Beyond falling into the cat-and-mouse game between adversarial attack and defense, this paper provides alternative perspective to consider adversarial example and explore whether we can exploit it in benign applications. We first propose a novel taxonomy of visual information along task-relevance and semantic-orientation. The emergence of adversarial example is attributed to algorithm's utilization of task-relevant non-semantic information. While largely ignored in classical machine learning mechanisms, task-relevant non-semantic information enjoys three interesting characteristics as (1) exclusive to algorithm, (2) reflecting common weakness, and (3) utilizable as features. Inspired by this, we present brave new idea called benign adversarial attack to exploit adversarial examples for goodness in three directions: (1) adversarial Turing test, (2) rejecting malicious algorithm, and (3) adversarial data augmentation. Each direction is positioned with motivation elaboration, justification analysis and prototype applications to showcase its potential.
