#67: Hypn(0)tism

  Rosenblatt describes multiple algorithms for training this model “reinforcement systems”   that are clearly influenced by Hebb’s theory of learning in real neural networks. Some algorithms that only strengthen the connections between activated S-Units “positive reinforcement”   and A-Units   some that only weaken the connection between activate   S-Units   “negative reinforcement”   … Pokračování textu #67: Hypn(0)tism

#66: Perceptron ~ Hypn0tism

  Rosenblatt describes the connection between the biological models through the simplified mathematical model of McCulloch-Pitts that describes a neuron as a binary threshold function. If the weighted sum of inputs surpasses a certain threshold value, the neuron   “fires”   resulting in a value of one, otherwise the value is zero. As the name … Pokračování textu #66: Perceptron ~ Hypn0tism
