## Express the expected output with probability

Let's express the expected output of deep learning with probability. Expressing with probability seems to improve the accuracy of deep learning.

In the case of handwriting recognition, 10 numbers from "0" to "9" are expected to be the correct answer.

This is expressed by probability. Think of "1" in the array as "100%" and 0 as "0%".

#Probability expression 0->[1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 1->[0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 2->[0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 3->[0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 4->[0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0] 5->[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0] 6->[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0] 7->[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0] 8->[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0] 9->[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1]

The values of the elements of the array represent the probability of being the expected value. For example, in the case of 4, the fourth value of the array subscript is 100%, and the others are 0%, which is the expected output expressed by probability.

This operation is commonly referred to as vectorization, but the simple meaning is that it expresses the expected output as a probability.

For general pattern recognition, you can do the same by assigning "dog", "cat", and "mouse" to "0", "1", and "2".

### Express the expected output with probability

Let's write a program that converts the expected output into a probability.

use strict; use warnings; sub probabilize_output { my ($outputs_length, $desired_value) = @_; my $probabilized_outputs = []; for (my $i = 0; $i <$outputs_length; $i ++) { $probabilized_outputs->[$i] = $desired_value == $i? 1: 0; } return $probabilized_outputs; } my $outputs_length = 10; my $desired_value = 4; my $probabilized_outputs = probabilize_output ($outputs_length, $desired_value); # 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 print "@$probabilized_outputs\n";
