# Analyzing and Improving Representations with the Soft Nearest Neighbor Loss

5 Feb 2019Nicholas FrosstNicolas PapernotGeoffrey Hinton

We explore and expand the $\textit{Soft Nearest Neighbor Loss}$ to measure the $\textit{entanglement}$ of class manifolds in representation space: i.e., how close pairs of points from the same class are relative to pairs of points from different classes. We demonstrate several use cases of the loss... (read more)
