Many visualization techniques have been created to explain the behavior of computer vision models, but they largely consist of static diagrams that convey limited information. Interactive visualizations allow users to more easily explore a model's behavior, but most are not easily reusable for new models. We introduce Visual Feature Search, a novel interactive visualization that is adaptable to any CNN and can easily be incorporated into a researcher's workflow. Our tool allows a user to highlight an image region and search for images from a given dataset with the most similar model features. We demonstrate how our tool elucidates different aspects of model behavior by performing experiments on a range of applications, such as in medical imaging and wildlife classification. We plan to open-source our tool to enable others to interpret their own models.
