Title:  Activation Atlas

Abstract:  While it remains conventional wisdom that Deep Learning techniques are primarily the result of impenetrable “black boxes”, there is a growing effort to peer into the box.  I will describe a few of the initial efforts and then focus on the Activation Atlas built by researchers at Google and Open AI.  I have been willing to state out-loud that I find this akin to peering into the brain of the network.
