What is a Multilayer Perceptron? What are the pros and cons of MLP? Can we classify handwritten digits accurately using an MLP classifier? How do learned weights look like?
1. Short Introduction
1.1 What is a Multilayer Perceptron (MLP)?
An MLP is a supervised machine learning (ML) algorithm that belongs in the class of feedforward artificial neural networks . The algorithm essentially is trained on the data in order to learn a function. Given a set of features and a target variable (e.g. labels) it learns a non-linear function…
