  • Mathematical notes about Neural networks

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to write few words about topic why mathematician believe that neural networks can be taught of something. Recently I've read book Fundamentasl of Artifical Neural Networks of Mohamad Hassoun and want to share some thoughts in more digestible manner with omitting some theoretical material.

    As you heard, when first attempt of neural networks was invented ( aka Perceptron), society was very admired by them, until Marvin Minsky and Seymour Papert showed that Perceptrons can't implement XOR function or in generally speaking any non linear function.

    It lead to big disappointment in area of neural networks.

    But why? Because sometime one line is not enough in … more
