HYPERPLANE ANIMATOR: Graphical display of backpropagation
training data and weights
The HYPERPLANE ANIMATOR is a program that allows convenient graphical
display of the training data and weights in a back-propagation neural
network. As learning progresses and the weights in a neural net
alter, the hyperplane positions move. At the end of the training they
are in positions that roughly divide training data into partitions,
each of which contains only one class of data. Observations of
hyperplane movement can yield valuable insights into neural network
learning. The system currently animates only hyperplanes
representing input-to-hidden weights.
