Introduction to Neural Networks

  • Abhijit GhatakEmail author


In this chapter, we will discuss the basic architecture of neural networks including activation functions, forward propagation, and backpropagation. We will also create a simple neural network model from scratch using the sigmoid activation function. In particular, this chapter will discuss:
  • Neural network architecture.

  • Activation functions used in neural networks.

  • Forward propagation.

  • Loss function of neural networks.

  • Backpropagation.
