For questions about the perceptron learning algorithm in Machine Learning.
Perceptron is a machine learning algorithm that helps provide classified outcomes for computing. It dates back to the 1950s and represents a fundamental example of how machine learning algorithms work to develop data.
The perceptron is an algorithm for supervised learning of binary classifiers (functions that can decide whether an input, represented by a vector of numbers, belongs to some specific class or not). It is a type of linear classifier, i.e. a classification algorithm that makes its predictions based on a linear predictor function combining a set of weights with the feature vector. The algorithm allows for online learning, in that it processes elements in the training set one at a time.
