How does one characterize a neural network with threshold-based activation functions?

In an attempt at designing a neural network more closely modeled by the human brain, I wrote code before doing the reading. The neuron I have modeled operates on the following method. Parameters: ...

If digital values are mere estimates, why not return to analog for AI?

The impetus behind the twentieth century transition from analog to digital circuitry was driven by the desire for greater accuracy and lower noise. Now we are developing software where results are ...
