### Maximum Layers in "any" Neural Network [duplicate]

I have about 6 months of experience in building and using Neural Networks with no prior/formal training. As I explore this field further, I see a lot of discussions about determining how many layers/...

### Depth of a Neural network

I was self-teaching myself. I totally understand why depth of a neural network affects the learning and how it differs than its width. But I am looking for some theoretical justification about it. ...
