Artificial neural network (ANN)

What is Artificial Neural Network?

You may ask yourself why this network is called an artificial neural network?

  • It is called that because the building block for it (the perceptron) looks like/mimics the neurons in the brain.

In this video, you will be introduced to the ANNs at a high level and see how they work.

The video will take you through an interactive visualisation of neural networks which contains a tiny neural network library that meets the demands of this educational visualisation. You can simulate, in real-time in your browser, small neural networks and see the results.

Discussion :

  • Can you explain in simple words what artificial neural networks are?
