Friday, September 1st at 2:30pm
TSC 122 Lecture Hall
Speaker:
 Assistant Professor Matthew Whitehead, Colorado College
Title: "Visualizing Artificial Neural Network Language Learning" 
Rated:  PG/PG13 (A lot of computer science knowledge assumed.)

Abstract:  When working with artificial neural networks that have complex structure, perhaps consisting of millions of parameters, it can be extremely difficult for humans to understand how the system is making decisions. For example, software emulating a pathologist may process visual biopsy data and classify a tumor as malignant, but it would have no ability to relay how and why that classification was made. In this talk, we will discuss a technique for visualizing what language processing deep artificial neural networks have learned and how they have learned it.
