The maximum number of iterations. Larger values are more accurate; setting it too small will require a large learning rate and will produce poor results.
 confidence : int or float
Confidence of adversarial examples: a higher value produces adversarials that are further away, but more strongly classified as adversarial.
 learning_rate : float
The learning rate for the attack algorithm. Smaller values produce better results but take longer to converge.
 initial_const : float
The initial tradeoffconstant to use to tune the relative importance of distance and confidence. If binary_search_steps is large, the initial constant is not important.
 abort_early : bool
If True, Adam will be aborted if the loss hasn’t decreased for some time (a tenth of max_iterations).
 input_or_adv : numpy.ndarray or
