The Walsh Hadamard transform maps points to certain patterns. And can map those certain patterns back to the original points again, since it is self inverse.<br />With random projections based on the WHT you get similar properties except they are not generally self inverse, you have to construct an inverse if you need it.<br />Anyway certain patterns can focus to a point in the output allowing to set whatever value you like there. With incomplete patterns (doing a dimension increase) you can only focus specific values in some places in the output and other places only a low precision approximation of the wanted value.<br />Anyway it is all just the linear algebra of under-determined systems.<br /><br />You could put a non-linearity at the output of the random projection after the dimension increase. Using say a signed square function y=x*x x>0, y=-x*x x<=0 you would get somewhat sparse synthesized weights with a spiky type of distribution. Or the signed square root (similar idea) has attractor states of +1,1 if you think the synthesized weights should have a soft binary type distribution.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6141980.post-54042577408286788732018-05-01T00:48:48.592-05:002018-05-01T00:48:48.592-05:00If what they are doing is variable precision weigh...If what they are doing is variable precision weight sharing:<br /><br />https://randomprojectionai.blogspot.com/2018/02/neural-network-weight-sharing-using.html<br /><br />Then it would be very interesting to figure out an algorithm to know which weights were being set very exactly to high precision and which ones to low precision. You can think of schemes where you alternate the backpropagation through 2 different random projections then look later where they agree to high precision on some weights and disagree on others.<br />I presume other people think it is a very significant paper?

Linear transformation can always be organized to leave the information content almost completely intact. With standard floating point operations (IEEE) any non-linear (activation) function will always cause information loss (ie the first derivative will be very coarse):<br /><br />https://www.spsc.tugraz.at/system/files/Geiger_InfoLossStatic.pdf<br /><br />Layer after layer the non-linearity in a deep neural network compounds. And at each layer a significant amount of information about the input is lost. After a number of layers the network ends up on a set trajectory, the input information is no longer available (has been washed out) to cause further switching between decision regions. <br /><br />In the system discribed maybe the random pathways through the network allow information about the input to pass through less hindered than if all the weights had been organized.<br /><br />SeanVNhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05967727000105480078noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6141980.post-36166645609672676372018-01-29T17:43:53.271-06:002018-01-29T17:43:53.271-06:00I think the idea with generalization is to make th...I think the idea with generalization is to make the decision regions as large as possible consistent with the training data. Tishby noted a diffusion process occurring in neural networks trained by backpropagation leading to compression. <br />https://youtu.be/bLqJHjXihK8<br />I presume that diffusion process increases the size of the decision regions maximally.<br /><br />I suppose just having a lot of random weights around automatically causes some broadening of the decision regions. Anyway it is interesting information for me. It provides some justification for evolving subsets of weights in a neural network rather than trying to evolve them all at once. <br />There is an interesting question whether or under what circumstances evolution can provide a similar diffusion process to backpropagation. <br /> SeanVNhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05967727000105480078noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6141980.post-52504343890977950092018-01-12T00:32:40.660-06:002018-01-12T00:32:40.660-06:00Off topic, somewhat:

A recent paper shows single pixel attacks of deep networks that would support the idea of bifurcations along 1 or several dimensions. Implying chaos theory applies.<br />By using ensembles of diverse neural networks you should be able to cancel out chaotic responses to low level Gaussian noise according to the central limit theorem.<br /><br />It shouldn't add too much extra computational burden because if you train the ensemble collectively you still get a chaos cancelling effect using individual networks with fewer weight parameters each. <br />https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/artificial-general-intelligence/itUghRNZWN8Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6141980.post-4587269790536423902017-09-30T14:18:19.880-05:002017-09-30T14:18:19.880-05:00Kevin,
