Perceptron

Concept and definition

Perceptron

What is Perceptron?

The Perceptron is a supervised learning algorithm used in the field of machine learning. It was one of the first neural network models developed and is used as a basis for other more complex models.

The Perceptron consists of a single processing node that accepts multiple inputs and produces a single output. The node performs a series of calculations by weighting the inputs and summing them, and then applies an activation function to produce the output. The algorithm uses a training data set to adjust the weights of the inputs so that the output approximates the desired output.

The Perceptron is especially useful in binary classification problems, i.e., problems in which one seeks to classify elements into two categories. However, its generalization capability is limited, so it is not suitable for more complex problems. Despite this, the Perceptron remains a valuable tool in machine learning and is used as a basis for more advanced models, such as multilayer neural networks.

See Multilayer Perceptron (MLP).
