Chris Olah drew a compelling analogy when he likened mechanistic interpretability to the process of reverse engineering a compiled binary computer program. Reverse Engineer Neural Networks 鈥淢echanistic interpretability aims to reverse engineer neural networks, much like the process of reverse engineering a compiled binary computer program. In essence, the parameters of a neural network can be viewed as a binary computer program operating on a specialized virtual machine known as a neural network architecture....
