摘要

The superior performance of neural networks has been demonstrated in many applications such as image classification, detection and processing. Yet, their working principle remains a mystery. In this talk, I will present work on interpretable neural networks developed in the last 4-5 years. The first topic is about interpretable multilayer perceptron (MLP). A connection is built between the classical two-class linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and the MLP. Based on this connection, we can obtain an interpretable MLP design that specifies the network architecture and all filter weights in a feedforward one-pass fashion. The second topic is about interpretable convolutional neural networks (CNNs). The convolutional layers of CCNs can be viewed as a sequence of spatial-spectral signal transforms while the fully connected layers of CNNs can be interpreted as multi-stage linear least-squared regressors. Through such interpretations, one can also design CCNs in a feedforward one-pass manner. Application examples based on interpretable designs will be given.
