Figure 8: A pictorial representation of the “dynamics-deprived neuron elimination” process. The primary neurons are labeled as “ ” and subsidiary neurons are labeled as “ ”. A three step process is adopted here, starting with eliminating the neurons with saturated dynamics in them as shown in (a), followed by folding the saturated output of the eliminated neurons as bias into the survival neurons as shown in (b). The final step shown in (c) is to verify the qualitative match of the dynamics produced by the bias modified (labeled with “*”) individual neurons to their counterparts in the original architecture.
