Keynote speech: Prof. Pena Carlos Andrés, HEIG-VD Methods for Rule and Knowledge Extraction from Deep Neural Networks

Abstract: Artificial deep neural networks are a powerful tool, able to extract information from large datasets and, using this acquired knowledge, make accurate predictions on previously unseen data. As a result, they are being applied in a wide variety of domains ranging from genomics to autonomous driving, from speech recognition to gaming. Many areas, where neural network-based solutions can be applied, require a validation, or at least some explanation, of how the system makes its decisions. This is especially true in the medical domain where such decisions can contribute to the survival or death of a patient. Unfortunately, the very large number of parameters required by deep neural networks is extremely challenging to cope with for explanation methods, and these networks remain for the most part black boxes. This demonstrates the real need for accurate explanation methods able to scale with this large quantity of parameters and to provide useful information to a potential user. Our research aims at providing tools and methods to improve the interpretability of deep neural networks.
