Urška Matjašec: How to Interpret Neural Network Decisions?

September 10, 2020 | 6:00 pm | Večnamenski center Turnišče

ASEF in cooperation with the Turnišče Youth Club – KMT and the Municipality of Turnišče presents a popular science lecture in the ASEF Young Minds series. It will be performed by Urška Matjašec, ASEF Fellow 2019 and Master of Science in Computer Science and Mathematics. The lecture held in Slovene will take place on-site (Večnamenski center Turnišče) and online on Thursday, September 9, 2020, at 6 PM CET.


To attend the lecture, you must register by September 9, 2020, at the latest by 6 PM. The Zoom link for access and the code for asking questions will be sent to all registered users by e-mail on the day of the event. It is possible to register for the event here.


Neural networks are one of the tools used in medicine – to make diagnoses, predict the most appropriate treatment for patients, create new drugs, … This is about life and death, so it is important to understand the decisions of systems based on neural networks. These are still used as a black box. In the lecture, we will look at one of the ways of interpreting neural networks.


Urška Matjašec completed a master’s degree in computer science and mathematics at the University of Ljubljana. In 2019, as part of the ASEF fellowship program, she got an opportunity to go on a research visit to prof. dr. Mateja Jamnik at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Urška is enthusiastic about big data and the various possibilities offered by the field of artificial intelligence.
