Easier and More-Transparent Machine Learning

Short Technical Video

Introductory video explaining the difference between our approach and conventional methods

Explainable AI Demonstration

From this explanation it is clear even to someone unfamiliar with Machine Learning that recognition is not happening as intended. Although this network performs well, it is focusing on pixels outside of where digit information is typically found.

We take an existing Machine Learning - Neural Network (a type called SVM) trained on a Post-office hand written numerical image data set (MNIST) and with OM technology demonstrate what it is doing.
