Linking Neural Networks, Manifolds, and Linguistic Signals

Denoising autoencoder from Deep Learning (714). Starting from the left, with corrupted inputs, the algorithm gradually moves them back to the manifold of standard digits, sometimes to a different point.

Up high, down low,
Up quick, down slow —
And that’s the way to blow. (Skinner 1984)

The community asks: What did you do? What are you doing? What are you going to do? And why? And the answers describe behavior and relate it to effective variables… the expression I grabbed the plate because it was going to fall refers to a response (grabbing) and a property of the occasion (it was going to fall) and implies a reinforcer (its falling would have been aversive to the speaker or others).
