How to Make a Python Perceptron from Scratch

An image that shows a Perceptron, and code to initialize a Python Perceptron.

The Perceptron stands as one of the most basic building blocks for creating neural networks, including more advanced structures like deep networks and their variants. Originally developed in the late 1950s, Perceptrons were designed to mimic the function of biological neurons. I recently wrote a blog post explaining some of the history of Perceptrons as … Read more
