[2210.05189] Neural Networks are Decision Trees

“In this manuscript, we show that any neural network having piece-wise linear activation functions can be represented as a decision tree. The representation is equivalence and not an approximation, thus keeping the accuracy of the neural network exactly as is. This equivalence shows that neural networks are indeed interpretable by design and makes the black-box understanding obsolete. We share equivalent trees of some neural networks and show that besides providing interpretability, tree representation can also achieve some computational advantages. The analysis holds both for fully connected and convolutional networks, which may or may not also include skip connections and/or normalizations.”

Bro IDS is now known as zeek; came to know it via this announcement – Zeek is Now a Component of Microsoft Windows.


Added a post on Wolfram Engine.

Cloudflare’s “free” plan has quite a few goodies. I turned it on for both btbytes.com https://807571.xyz. The S3 compatible R2 object storage also looks good. I might use that to store static assets.

The email forwarding feature is also very nice.
