Artificial Neural Networks – The Rosenblatt Perceptron

Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) are machine learning models that have been inspired by the brain functioning. Through my next posts I will try to introduce artificial neural networks in a simple high level way, highlighting its capabilities but also showing its limitations. In this first post, I will introduce the simplest neural network, the Rosenblatt […]
