To best present this material, I broke the network down in order to introduce one step at a time.
Similarly, this version glows to highlight which parameters are learnable.
I designed this in Figma, using a few plugins for the grid, arrows, and glowing effects.
Here’s a rough draft I made in the CleanShot editor tool.
This makes learning the structure more intuitive for beginners, and faster for experienced researchers. Win-win.
I received great feedback on this design in a graduate class at UIUC, and I hope to continue innovating on better ways to communicate technical information.
