Neural Networks 3: Training

Note: I’ve started announcing new posts on twitter (@jejomath) for anyone who wants updates when new posts appear. In the last two posts, I described how a single neuron in a neural network encodes a single, usually simple, classifier algorithm, … Continue reading

Neural Networks 2: Evaluation

In last week’s post, I introduced the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) algorithm by explaining how a single neuron in a neural network behaves. Essentially, we can think of a neuron as a classification algorithm with a number of inputs that … Continue reading

Neural Networks 1: The neuron

In the next two posts, I plan to introduce the classification algorithm called an Artificial Neural Network (ANN). As the name suggests, this algorithm is meant to mimic the networks of neurons that make up our brains. ANNs are one … Continue reading

Multi-class classification

If you paid really close attention to my last few posts, you might have noticed that I’ve been cheating slightly. (But if you didn’t notice, don’t worry – it was a subtle cheat.) When I introduced the problem of classification, … Continue reading
