Local Network Interpretation

The purpose of this week's lecture is to introduce some of the early techniques that we have used to interpret neural networks. This includes examining connection weights, as well as developling local interpretations of bands that are found in the jittered density plots of hidden value units. This will set the stage for more recent interpretative strategies that will be discussed in two weeks.

Our activity this week will involve examining the internal structure of a network trained to classify different types of musical chords. In addition, expect to have a one-on-one chat about how your ideas for your term paper are shaping up!.
