## Study Notes

### Neural Networks

- A neural network is a bunch of neurons connected together.
- It can have multiple layers, including an input layer, one or more hidden layers, and an output layer.
- A hidden layer is any layer between the input layer and output layer.

### Training a Neural Network

- The process involves three steps: initialize weights, repeat forward and backward passes, and modify weights.
- Forward pass: calculate outputs from inputs using current weights.
- Backward pass: calculate error and modify weights to minimize error.

### Feedforward Neural Network

- Calculate outputs from inputs using current weights.
- Output of one layer is used as input to the next layer.

### Back Propagation

- Calculate error and modify weights to minimize error.
- Calculate errors for each layer, starting from the output layer and moving backwards.

### XOR Problem

- A simple neuron (perceptron) cannot classify XOR problem.
- Solution is to add a hidden layer to create a multilayer perceptron (MLP).

### Multilayer Perceptron (MLP)

- A feedforward neural network with one or more hidden layers.
- Can solve non-linear problems like XOR.

### Example Neural Network

- Given a neural network with 2 inputs, 2 hidden neurons, and 1 output neuron.
- Calculate output using given weights and activation functions.

### Building Blocks: Neurons

- A neuron takes inputs, applies weights, adds bias, and passes through an activation function.
- Activation function is used to turn an unbounded input into a predictable output.

### Activation Function

- A commonly used activation function is the sigmoid function.
- Sigmoid function outputs numbers in the range (0,1) and compresses (-âˆž, +âˆž) to (0,1).

### Linear Classifier

- A simple neuron can solve linear classifier problems like OR.
- But it cannot solve non-linear problems like XOR.
