What is a Multilayer Perceptron? What are the pros and cons of MLP? Can we classify handwritten digits accurately using a MLP classifier? How do learnt 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…
