During my job at 100%FAT, I developed the software for Neural Net, an interactive installation for the Technical Museum Wien in Vienna, Austria.
The installation is aimed at visualizing how an AI Neural Network works. In the installation, neurons in different layers are connected with each other. Each connection transmits only a small amount of information, but all neurons combined can achieve great things.
I first made a simulation of what the end result would look like, to be able to quickly make changes and see what works and what doesn’t. This is much easier to do in software than hardware.
The user can ‘draw’ a digit between 0 and 9 using 20 giant buttons. The neural net will respond to changes in real-time and try to predict what number has been put in. The brightness of all 1500+ LED’s will communicate what the network is doing and show the flow of information.
