I have a dataset in which the response variable is Sick(1) or not sick (2). As for the variables, there are a few numeric ones (2/14), all the others are variables by levels (example: 1-Abdominal pain, 2-Throat pain...).
I had two questions:
1-Can a multilayer perceptron classify a binary variable? Or can it only return numerical values?
2-Can binary or leveled variables be passed as training to the multilayer perceptron?
Thank you very much.
