Collective Response of Reservoir Networks — •Arash Akrami, Fabio Schittler Neves, Xiaozhu Zhang, Malte Schröder, and Marc Timme — Chair for Network Dynamics, Institute for Theoretical Physics and Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed), TU Dresden
Reservoir Computing constitutes a paradigm of bio-inspired machine learning relying on dynamical systems theory, that exploits high dimensionality of a large network of processing units (reservoir). However, as the collective dynamics of artificial neural networks is far from understood, their learning outcome is hardly predictable or transparent.
In Reservoir Computing systems, learning occurs exclusively in a read-out layer, with the intrinsic reservoir dynamics freely evolving.
Here we study reservoirs of processing units with linear activation functions, i.e., linear reservoirs and analytically predict the dynamic responses of all network units as a function of general, distributed and time-dependent input signals. These insights may help identifying nodes especially suitable for receiving input signals, and finding minimal reservoirs capable of performing a given task.
