GAN dissection: visualizing and understanding generative adversarial networks

GAN dissection: visualizing and understanding generative adversarial networks Bau et al., arXiv'18 Earlier this week we looked at visualisations to aid understanding and interpretation of RNNs, today’s paper choice gives us a fascinating look at what happens inside a GAN (generative adversarial network). In addition to the paper, the code is available on GitHub and ... Continue Reading

The why and how of nonnegative matrix factorization

The why and how of nonnegative matrix factorization Gillis, arXiv 2014 from: ‘Regularization, Optimization, Kernels, and Support Vector Machines.’ Last week we looked at the paper ‘Beyond news content,’ which made heavy use of nonnegative matrix factorisation. Today we’ll be looking at that technique in a little more detail. As the name suggests, ‘The Why ... Continue Reading

ExFaKT: a framework for explaining facts over knowledge graphs and text

ExFaKT: a framework for explaining facts over knowledge graphs and text Gad-Elrab et al., WSDM'19 Last week we took a look at Graph Neural Networks for learning with structured representations. Another kind of graph of interest for learning and inference is the knowledge graph. Knowledge Graphs (KGs) are large collections of factual triples of the ... Continue Reading
