Explaint to not Forget: Defending Against Catastrophic Forgetting with XAI

Sami Ede, Wojciech Samek, Sebastian Lapuschkin, Leander Weber, Serop Baghdadlian, An Nguyen, Dario Zanca

The ability to continuously process and retain new information like we do naturally as humans is a feat that is highly sought after when training neural networks. Unfortunately, the traditional optimization algorithms often require large amounts...

Towards the Interpretability of Deep Learning Models for Human Neuroimaging

Simon M. Hofmann, Klaus-Robert Müller, Wojciech Samek, Arno Villringer, Sebastian Lapuschkin, Frauke Beyer, Markus Loeffler, A. Veronica Witte

Brain-age (BA) estimates based on deep learning are increasingly used as neuroimaging biomarker for brain health; however, the underlying neural features have remained unclear. We combined ensembles of convolutional neural networks with...

Characterization of Dispersion-Tailored Silicon Strip Waveguide for Wideband Wavelength Conversion

Hidenobu Muranaka, Colja Schubert, Carsten Schmidt-Langhorst, Tomoyuki Kato, Isaac Sackey, Takeshi Hoshida, Gregor Ronniger, Shun Okada, Tokuharu Kimura, Yu Tanaka, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

In view of application to wideband wavelength conversion, an SOI waveguide was fabricated and characterized. Conversion of C- band WDM test signals into S- and L- bands in a single waveguide is demonstrated.

DSP-Based Link Tomography for Amplifier Gain Estimation and Anomaly Detection in C+L-Band Systems

Matheus Ribeiro Sena, Ronald Freund, Robert Emmerich, Johannes K. Fischer, Mohammad Behnam Shariati, Caio Marciano Santos

In this work, we propose a spatially-resolved and wavelength-dependent DSP-based monitoring scheme to accurately estimate the spectral gain profile of C+L-band in-line Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers deployed in a 280-km single mode fiber link.

Bayesian Optimization for Nonlinear System Identification and Pre-distortion in Cognitive Transmitters

Matheus Ribeiro Sena, Ronald Freund, Johannes Fischer, Robert Emmerich, Mustafa Sezer Erkilinc, Mohammad Behnam Shariati, Thomas Dippon

We present a digital signal processing (DSP) scheme that performs hyperparameter tuning (HT) via Bayesian optimization (BO) to autonomously optimize memory tap distribution of Volterra series and adapt parameters used in the synthetization of a...

Toward Explainable AI for Regression Models

Simon Letzgus, Klaus-Robert Müller, Wojciech Samek, Grégoire Montavon, Patrick Wagner, Jonas Lederer

While such Explainable AI (XAI) techniques have reached significant popularity for classifiers, so far little attention has been devoted to XAI for regression models (XAIR). In this review, we clarify the fundamental conceptual differences of XAI...

Communication-Efficient Federated Distillation via Soft-Label Quantization and Delta Coding

Felix Sattler, Wojciech Samek, Arturo Marban, Roman Rischke

Communication constraints prevent the wide-spread adoption of Federated Learning systems. In this work, we investigate Federated Distillation (FD) from the perspective of communication efficiency by analyzing the effects of active...

Multiparametric MRI for characterization of the basal ganglia and the midbrain

Till M. Schneider, Jackie Ma, Patrick Wagner, Nicolas Behl, Armin Michael Nagel, Mark E. Ladd, Sabine Heiland, Martin Bendszus, Sina Straub

In this joint work with the University of Heidelberg, German Cancer Research Center, University Hospital of Erlangen we showed that multimodal quantitative MR enabled excellent differentiation of a wide spectrum of subcortical nuclei with...

Adaptive Differential Filters for Fast and Communication-Efficient Federated Learning

Daniel Becking, Karsten Müller, Heiko Schwarz, Heiner Kirchhoffer, Gerhard Tech, Wojciech Samek, Paul Haase

Federated learning (FL) scenarios inherently generate a large communication overhead by frequently transmitting neural network updates between clients and server. In this work, we propose a new scaling method operating at the granularity of...

Differentially Private One-Shot Federated Distillation

Haley Hoech, Karsten Müller, Wojciech Samek, Roman Rischke

Federated learning suffers in the case of "non-iid" local datasets, i.e., when the distributions of the clients’ data are heterogeneous. One promising approach to this challenge is the recently proposed method FedAUX, an augmentation of federated...
