I am referring Andrew Ng's course to implement neural network https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_Eamf8MHwU&t. In this course bias is taken single matrix with weights. I got a error and I am not able to figure in days what error I am doing. Neural network I'm trying to simulate is 2 node in input layer,3 in hidden and 2 in output layer. Here is the code

def feed_forward(a):  
    for w in theta:

#delta is the error in each layer

def back_propagate():
    for l in range(network_length-3,-1,-1):

I get error in last line saying

ValueError: operands could not be broadcast together with shapes (4,1) (3,1)


I don't know why activation and np.dot(theta[l+1].T,delta[l+1]) dimension not matching

  • $\begingroup$ @SaiSreenivas that is what confuses me. I don't know (3,1) or (4,1). Since hidden layer contain 3 node + extra node with 1 for bias. I don't know that extra node is considered or not $\endgroup$ – BRUCE Aug 1 '20 at 16:41
