Can neurons in MLP and filters in CNN be compared?

I know they are not the same in working, but an input layer sends the input to $n$ neurons with a set of weights, based on these weights and the activation layer, it produces an output that can be fed ...

Why is training all layers at a time effective for a multi-layer autoencoder?

This training of all layers of a CNN simultaneously is standard practice today. It is found in every CNN (AlexNet (2012), VGG, Inception, GANs, etc) and even pre-CNN networks such as Le et al. 2012. ...

What is the number of neurons required to approximate a polynomial of degree n?

I learned about the universal approximation theorem from this guide. It states that a network even with a single hidden layer can approximate any function within some bound, given a sufficient number ...

Did Minsky and Papert know that multi-layer perceptrons could solve XOR?

In their famous book entitled Perceptrons: An Introduction to Computational Geometry, Minsky and Papert show that a perceptron can't solve the XOR problem. This contributed to the first AI winter, ...
