CeBIT 2017: Analysis software for neural networks

Neural networks are commonly used today to analyze complex data – for instance to find clues to illnesses in genetic information. Ultimately, though, no one knows how these networks actually work exactly. That is why Fraunhofer researchers developed software that enables them to look into these black boxes and analyze how they function. The researchers will present their software at CeBIT in Hannover from March 20 to 24, 2017 (Hall 6, Booth B 36).

  • The software recognizes which parameters a neural network uses to make decisions.
  • It is of interest for any area in which data such as text, images and signals are automatically processed and evaluated by neural networks.
  • For example, the software can analyze complex production data and deduce which parameters are decisive for product quality or possible deviations.
