We Still Know Very Little About How AI Thinks

Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT Tommi Jaakkola says, “If you had a very small neural network, you might be able to understand it. But once it becomes very large, and it has thousands of units per layer and maybe hundreds of layers, then it becomes quite un-understandable.” We are at the stage of these large systems now. So, in order to make these machines explain themselves — an issue that will have to be solved before we can place any trust in them — what methods are we using?
