Visualizing the Evolution of Neural Networks | Mohak Kant | Cognizant


Here at Cognizant what I’m working with
is visualizing how the neural networks are evolving as their algorithm proceeds.
It’s basically a tool for all the data scientists to see what they’re actually
building. The thing that excites me about this team is that all these neural
scientists and other companies are effectively, in the end, trying to model
the human brain and get to that accuracy and efficiency. However, we don’t have just enough information; the scientists don’t know enough to actually do that. The
evolutionary part of this AI, the genetic algorithms are trying to just basically
say that we are doing what evolution did for us; how they created the human brain.
We’re gonna use similar Darwin mechanisms and evolutionary algorithms
to basically model something similar to the human brain. The data scientists who
are out there they contact our API and then whenever they send in their data, the
algorithm evolves in your neural network and once it is evolved to a certain
point in each generation, my algorithm actually spits out a PDF or a ping file
that they can open and see what the architecture actually looks like so they
can debug it and basically interpret what’s happening behind the scenes.
Their goal is to build something that humans probably cannot build by hand.
Until now what you had to do was you had to go read in a JSON file which is like
a huge text file but it’s hard to interpret and you just you can just get
lost because these modules evolve to such huge things. Now you actually have the
pretty… it’s like a visualizer that actually draws what it’s looks likes and
over each generation, you can actually visualize each of the population
candidates and how they have changed over time. From what I have read and what I know maybe in the next 15 to 20 years we should be
able to get somewhere close because it’s not just the model of the human brain
that matters, it’s also the computation speed and the data that we can gather. It
changes the world drastically and it’s a very hard thing to
answer as of now whether it will change it for good or bad. It actually depends
on who uses it, how it’s used and how actually self conscious that AI is.
