### In theory, should neuromorphic computers be more efficient than traditional computers when performing logic?

There is this general sentiment about neuromorphic computers that they are simply "more efficient" than von Neuman. I've heard a lot of talk about neuromorphic computers in the context of ...

### Delta rule for binary step function

I have a question of understanding about the Delta Rule: $\Delta w_i = (y - \hat{y}) \times x_i$ Why does $x$ have to be multiplied again after the difference? If the input is $0$, the product of $w$...

### Predicting next action to take to reach a final state

Does anyone know of an algorithm that could be used to determine the next action to take to reach a desired state when trained on time-series data? For example, a robot starts at a certain state, ...

### Intersection of two generative neural networks

I have an input x (a word), and I have a neural network Y such that Y(x), which is an image always satisfies F(x), and another neural network Z such that Z(x), which is also an image, always satisfies ...

### Using a point as an input for a perceptron

Can a point be used as the input for a perceptron/neural net? The relationship between the two numbers that make up a 2D point does not affect the output, but does this not matter when the ...

### If the human brain is a Turing machine then how is it able to ascertain that certain problems are undecidable? [closed]

I recently read about the idea that the human brain might be a Turing machine (or Turing complete). If that is true then how is the brain able to reason that a certain problem is undecidable for e.g. ...

### Single Layer Perceptron vs Multi Layer Perceptron

Why the single layer perceptron has a linear activation function while the Multi Layer Perceptron has a non-linear activation function ? What is the potential of the Multi Layer Perceptron respect of ...

### Analog circuits for neural networks?

Neural networks in machine learning are inherently a continuous model of computation. Yet we use digital logic circuits with floating point numbers to "emulate" this continuity. I am wondering: is ...

### Is deep learning appropriate to approximate dynamic programming problems?

I have a problem which can be completely solved using dynamic programming, but in a very intractable way (On^4, where n is around 1000). I won't get into the details of the problem since it's a bit ...

### Replace EKF by Neural Networks

I made a SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) using Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) and it works really good, but I want to see if it works better using Neural Networks. For the EKF I used an ...

### Is it Possible to Get Maximum Weighted Input Value in a Neural Network?

Let's say that I have a standard feedforward neural network which has $M$ inputs, some number of hidden layers $N$, and a single neuron in the output. Is it possible to construct a network such that ...

### NeuroEvolution: NEAT algorithm innovation numbers

I have been reading up on the NeuronEvolution of Augmented Topologies and there's this little thing that's been bothering me. While reading Kenneth Stanley's Paper on NEAT I came on this figure here: ...

### How to model a set of categorical values in the input of a neural network

One of the inputs to my neural network is a set. I have a set $S = \{s_0, s_1, ..., s_n\}$ in which all values $s_i$ are constant. An example of such a set could be the set of French wines (...

### Architecture of a chatbot - how to organize and fetch possibilities? [closed]

I'm building a chatbot that would respond to text messages. Let's say that my chatbot works for customers of an internet provider and it can respond to the following things: Problems: About payment;...

### Determining if my artificial neural network needs additional layers

I have implemented a neural network for load forecasting in Microsoft Excel. My structure is very simplistic and involves only 1 hidden layer and 4 neurons. (See picture) I trained my network with a ...

### How a human brain does computation after lexical analysis and parsing?

I've been trying to figure out the answer for this question. How exactly a human brain understands or computes the meaning of any sentence after doing the lexical analysis and parsing? What is the ...

### Where to start studying about HTM?

I am looking for references (pedagogic and beginner friendly!) to these two topics, hierarchical temporal memory algorithms applied to deep planning problems (multi-layer) neural networks trained ...
