Dr. Bernhard Geiger, from Know-Center GmbH has been invited by ZIM (Zentrum für Informationsmodellierung) to give an online Lunchtime Lecture on ‘Understanding Neural Networks with Information Theory’.
Neural networks are among the most powerful however, the least understood machine learning architectures. Recently, information theory has been used to open these proverbial ‘black boxes’.
This talk will start with a brief, superficial introduction to neural networks before giving an overview of recent information-theoretic approaches to understand and characterize neural networks. Finally, we will investigate how the importance of individual neurons can be quantified with information quantities.
Be a part of this interesting lecture and gain insights into the world of Neural Networks!
