Abstract

Deep Learning is often called a black box, so how can we diagnose and fix problems in a Deep Neural Network (DNN)? Engineers at Cardiogram explain how they systematically debugged DeepHeart, a DNN that detects cardiovascular disease from heart rate data. You'll leave this talk with an arsenal of tools for debugging DNNs, including Jacobian analysis, TensorBoard, and "DNN Unit Tests".
