Collage Triptych

Posted: May 19, 2017 at 4:41 pm

As filtering by area lead to such interesting results, I went ahead and split up the percepts into three groups according to percept areas. The triptych below shows all 200,000 percepts, but separated into three separately trained and differently sized SOMs. I’ve also included details of the latter two SOMs. I thought this approach would lead to more cohesion within each map, but the redundancy between the second and third images leads me to believe that 200,000 is too many clusters. Since I need to reduce the number of clusters for the Dreaming part of Watching and Dreaming, I’ll put the collage project aside until I’ve determined a reasonable max number of clusters for LSTM prediction and then come back to it.
