Ladies and Gentlemen. Due to the coronavirus epidemic in Poland, the CTP PAS is operating in a limited way. In particular, until further notice the secretariat and the accountancy of the CTP PAS will be working only remotely. Contact with the administration is possible only by an e-mail. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Name Quantum Information and Quantum Computing working group
Title Phase Detection with Neural Networks: Interpreting the Black Box, part 2
Neural networks (NNs) normally do not allow any insight into the reasoning behind their predictions. We demonstrate how influence functions can unravel the black box of NN when trained to predict the phases of the one-dimensional extended spinless Fermi-Hubbard model at half-filling. Results are the first indication that the NN correctly learns an order parameter describing the transition. Moreover, we demonstrate that influence functions not only allow to check that the network trained to recognize known quantum phases can predict new unknown ones but even discloses information about the type of phase transition.

This presentation is a continuation of the talk given within the Center for Theoretical Physics Colloquium. I will repeat (this time briefly) the introduction to the topic of interpretable machine learning. The detailed description of how we prepared the dataset, chose, and trained the NN will follow. Finally, I will present our results of applying influence functions to the trained NN.
