  • During this period, in addition to my studies, I began a voluntary circle to study a perceptron with a few friends, since I thought that research of the brain and human consciousness was important but not yet fully understood theoretically.

  • The perceptron became a subject of military research because of the possibility that it could be used to identify nuclear submarines by sound spectrograms.

  • I noticed then that the number of research papers about the perceptron was decreasing significantly.

  • He used a bunch of phrases that were cryptic to me like “zero layer network” to mean something other than a perceptron (I asked), and “zero iteration training” of a network.

  • I would smile or frown as the machine generated sound and the perceptron could see my reactions.

  • One of the most widespread architectures, multilayered perceptron with back propagation of errors, emulates the work of neurons incorporated in a hierarchical network, where the input of each neuron of the next layer is connected with the outputs of all neurons of the previous layer.

  • "An artificial neural network which attempts to emulate this pattern recognition process is called the Perceptron. In this model, the nodes representing artificial neurons are arranged into layers. The signal representing an input pattern is fed into the first layer. The nodes in this layer are connected to another layer (sometimes called the 'hidden layer'). The firing of nodes on the input layer is conveyed via these connections to this hidden layer. Finally, the activity on the nodes in this layer feeds onto the final output layer, where the pattern of firing of the output nodes defines the response of the network to the given input pattern."
