Consider a perceptron where $w_0=1$ and $w_1=1$: Perceptron Now, say we use an activation function


$~~~~~~~~~~~~~0, otherwise$

The output is then summarised as:

$x_0~~~~~x_1~~~~~w_0*x_0 + w_1*x1~~~~~f(.)$





Someone tell Rosenblatt I solved his problem ...

...or have I?

Is there something wrong with the way I've defined the activation function?


1 Answer 1


Your function

0,otherwise 1

is not a linear combination of the inputs.

From the definition of single layer perceptronL

A single layer perceptron (SLP) is a feed-forward network based on a threshold transfer function

Your function has two thresholds: one for < 1 another for >1
