Under the hood: Black box forever? Regulation and the limits of AI explanations

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


An “invisible hand” of algorithms is influencing us ever more. Some algorithms are using our personal data while other algorithms are using the data of people similar to us. How can current and future regulation help us understand and control how we are influenced? Will such regulation let the most unscrupulous actors dominate the field? Is it always possible to give an explanation of why an algorithm made a decision which makes sense to the person affected by the decision? Can such explanations be verified? Might such explanations reveal trade secrets? Also, will we be able to predict whether actions we take will cause an algorithm to make a different decision about us in the future?

The lecture will be held by Gudbrand Eggen, Data Scientist and Lab Lead at StartupLab DNN lectures.

Under the hood: Making sense of convolutions in DNNs for Image Recognition applications

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


In this lecture we aim to understand and explain the behavior of a deep convolutional neural network. By analyzing the response of each layer we gain knowledge how the CNN is working, and what triggers a given neuron. We also perform a “sensitivity analysis” in order to explain which features or pixels in the input image that is important for the corresponding network output (prediction), and which pixels are the network sensitive to.

The lecture will be held by Dr. Arnt-Børre Salberg, Norwegian Computing Center.

Under the hood: Capsule Networks – next generation learning architecture

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


To quote Geoffrey Hinton :"The pooling operation used in convolutional neural networks is a big mistake and the fact that it works so well is a disaster."

Pooling is a necessity in most large convolutional nets, but explicitly break hierarchical relationships in the data, or at least makes learning of the underlying representations very inefficient. At the same time, almost all interesting problems have clear hierarchies or geometric relationships. One approach to efficiently learn hierarchical correspondences is Capsule Networks where neurons are extended to output a tensor instead of a scalar. This has several benefits, for example the ability of each (extended) neuron to predict geometric transforms. Theory, use cases, training and extensions will be discussed.

The lecture will be held by Dr. Asbjørn Berge, Sintef.

Under the hood: What happens if we understand the neural networks, and what happens if we don't?

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


We will say that we understand a decision or a result from a neural network if we are able to perceive a reason or meaning behind what is presented. This may be a challenge since neural networks learn in a different way from what we do, lacking for instance our sense of common sense and ethical considerations. We present examples where “AI-lash” (re techlash) may occur as a result of current use, and discuss sensible ways to avoid this.

The lecture will be held by Prof. Nils Christophersen, UiO. Head of the Innovation committee at the Department of Informatics and the group appointed to develop teaching of innovation and entrepreneurship at the University as a whole.

Under the hood: Compressed sensing (CS) and its relation to neural networks and deep learning

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


CS transformed medical imaging through the 2017 approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of CS techniques in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), resulting in widespread use (scanners at the UiO hospitals are now run with CS). However, the success of deep learning (DL) has sparked a vast interest in the question: can DL can outperform CS in image reconstruction? Indeed, in 2018 Nature published the paper "Image reconstruction by domain transform manifold learning" representing the tip of the iceberg of DL methods promising improved performance and "... observed superior immunity to noise…" Despite the promise, DL becomes, as in the classification problem, completely unstable also for image reconstruction (however, for completely different reasons). The phenomenon can be understood by linking CS and DL. In fact, CS may be viewed as a constructive way, without any learning, to build stable neural networks for image reconstruction. The question then becomes: why do trained neural networks based on DL become unstable yet the constructed (untrained) networks based on CS remain stable?

The lecture will be given by Dr. Anders Hansen. Dr. Anders Hansen is head of the group in Applied Functional and Harmonic Analysis within the Cambridge Centre of Analysis at DAMTP. He is also Prof. II at the Institute of Mathematics, UiO.

Under the hood: Bayesian approaches to neural networks

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


Use of neural network, both deep and shallow, require learning a large number of parameters (weights) from observed data. Due to limited amounts of data there is a danger of overfitting. Further, the amount of uncertainty in the estimated parameters can have huge effect on the prediction performance. In this seminar we will discuss the Bayesian approach to learning and fitting neural networks. Both benefits of such approaches and conceptual as well as computational challenges will be discussed.

The lecture will be held by Prof. Geir Storvik, UiO.

Under the hood: Machine Learning and the Physical Sciences

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forskningsparken


Machine Learning (ML) is one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of modern research and application. Here I will show how we can use physics inspired deep learning algorithms like Boltzmann machines to study study problems in quantum many body physics, quantum computing, and chemical and material physics.

The lecture will be given by Morten Hjorth-Jensen, Michigan State University and UiO.

Morten is a theoretical physicist with a strong interest in computational physics and many-body theory in general, and the nuclear many-body problem and nuclear structure problems in particular. This means that he study various methods for solving either Schrödinger's equation or Dirac's equation for many interacting particles, spanning from algorithmic aspects to the mathematical properties of such methods. The latter also leads to a strong interest in computational physics as well as computational aspects of quantum mechanical methods. he share his time equally between Michigan State University in the US (January-June) and the University of Oslo, Norway (July-December).

Under the hood: A mathematical intro to deep learning - What do neural nets actually learn?

x

Tid: 14:00 - 16:00

Sted: Forum, Forskningsparken


DL has had unprecedented success and has revolutionised artificial intelligence (AI). However, despite the success, DL methods have a serious achilles heel; they are universally unstable and thus demonstrate highly non-human-like behaviour. This has serious consequences, and Science recently published a paper warning about the potentially fatal consequences. The question is: why do AI algorithms based on deep learning become unstable and perform so different to humans? Current mathematical theory on neural networks cannot explain this. We will demonstrate the reason for this discrepancy: neural networks do not learn the structures that humans learn, but completely different structures. These different (false) structures correlate well with the original structure that humans learn, hence the success, however they are completely unstable, yielding non-human performance.

The talk will be given by Dr. Anders Hansen UiO/Cambridge. Dr. Anders Hansen is head of the group in Applied Functional and Harmonic Analysis within the Cambridge Centre of Analysis at DAMTP. He is also Prof. II at the Institute of Mathematics, UiO.

Many machine learning methods are more or less black boxes for the end user. Even those who develop the machine learning methods can struggle with explaining how methods actually work, or which variables that are most decisive for a specific prediction. The latter is a GDPR requirement for automated individual decision-making. We will give an overview of current methods for opening black boxes. Some of them are useful, while others need more research to be more useful than harmful.
