Yeah! First semester of Master’s finished!
More details are to come (I will likely make a project page). But the above is the output of a neural network as represented by a Restricted Boltzmann Machine, when it is prodded in the direction of different digits. The top row is how the digit evolves if you poke the ‘zero’ neuron (think of it as poking the ‘burnt toast’ neuron) and each row down represents the next digit. Poking five works pretty well since it is a five already.
