Analysis of the Internal Representations in Neural Networks for Machine Intelligence

Lai-Wan Chan

The internal representation of the training patterns of multi-layer perceptrons was examined and we demonstrated that the connection weights between layers are effectively transforming the representation format of the information from one layer to another one in a meaningful way. The internal code, which can be in analog or binary form, is found to be dependent on a number of factors, including the choice of an appropriate representation of the training patterns, the similarities between the patterns as well as the network structure; i.e. the number of hidden layers and the number of hidden units in each layer.
