# Is there some way for us to know if the neural network internally finds an association between labels?

I have a question about the association between labels. Say my neural network performs multi-labeling in its output layer. Now, if one of the labels is for whether a person lives in city $$X$$, another for if they have a wiki article, and finally a third for if that person is a millionaire. Let us assume that these are highly correlated.

Is there some way for us to know if the neural network internally finds an association between these three labels?

• As far as I understand, no. Neural networks are not explainable AI. Explainable AI is more based on symbolic AI (expert systems, inference rules, etc....) like RefPerSys hopes to become in 2022 Dec 11 '21 at 18:17
