Perceptrons – the most basic form of a neural network

Artificial Neural Networks have gained attention during the recent years, driven by advances in deep learning. But what is an Artificial Neural Network and what is it made of?

Meet the perceptron.

In this article we’ll have a quick look at artificial neural networks in general, then we examine a single neuron, and finally (this is the coding part) we take the most basic version of an artificial neuron, the perceptron, and make it classify points on a plane.

But first, let me introduce the topic.
