This post is a part of my forthcoming book on Mathematical foundations of Data Science. In this post, we use the Perceptron algorithm to bridge the gap between high school maths and deep learning. As part of my role as course director of the Artificial Intelligence: Cloud and Edge Computing at the University..., I see more students who are familiar with programming than with mathematics. They have last learnt maths years ago at University. And then, suddenly they find that they encounter matrices, linear algebra etc when they start learning Data Science.
In this post you discovered artificial neural networks for machine learning. How neural networks are not models of the brain but are instead computational models for solving complex machine learning problems. That neural networks are comprised of neurons that have weights and activation functions. The networks are organized into layers of neurons and are trained using stochastic gradient descent. That it is a good idea to prepare your data before training a neural network model.
Artificial neural networks are a fascinating area of study, although they can be intimidating when just getting started. There are a lot of specialized terminology used when describing the data structures and algorithms used in the field. In this post you will get a crash course in the terminology and processes used in the field of multi-layer perceptron artificial neural networks.

This article offers a brief glimpse of the history and basic concepts of machine learning. We will take a look at the first algorithmically described neural network and the gradient descent algorithm in context of adaptive linear neurons, which will not only introduce the principles of machine learning but also serve as the basis for modern multilayer neural networks in future articles. Machine learning is one of the hottest and most exciting fields in the modern age of technology. Thanks to machine learning, we enjoy robust email spam filters, convenient text and voice recognition, reliable web search engines, challenging chess players, and, hopefully soon, safe and efficient self-driving cars. Without any doubt, machine learning has become a big and popular field, and sometimes it may be challenging to see the (random) forest for the (decision) trees.
