- Which of the following statements are true? Check all that apply.
- Any logical function over binary-valued (0 or 1) inputs x1 and x2 can be (approximately) represented using some neural network.
- Suppose you have a multi-class classification problem with three classes, trained with a 3 layer network. Let be the activation of the first output unit, and similarly and . Then for any input x, it must be the case that .
- A two layer (one input layer, one output layer; no hidden layer) neural network can represent the XOR function.
- The activation values of the hidden units in a neural network, with the sigmoid activation function applied at every layer, are always in the range (0, 1).

- Consider the following neural network which takes two binary-valued inputs

and outputs . Which of the following logical functions does it (approximately) compute?

- AND
This network outputs approximately 1 only when both inputs are 1.

- NAND (meaning “NOT AND”)
- OR
- XOR (exclusive OR)

- You have the following neural network:

You’d like to compute the activations of the hidden layer . One way to do

so is the following Octave code:

You want to have a vectorized implementation of this (i.e., one that does not use for loops). Which of the following implementations correctly compute ? Check all

that apply.

**Check-out our free tutorials on IOT (Internet of Things):**

- You are using the neural network pictured below and have learned the parameters (used to compute ) and (used to compute as a function of ). Suppose you swap the parameters for the first hidden layer between its two units so and also swap the output layer so . How will this change the value of the output ?

Why I can't represent XOR function without hidden layers? If I have a case like question 2 but with the weights: -10, 20, -20 I would get:

ReplyDeletex1 | x2 | xor

0 | 0 | 0

0 | 1 | 1

1 | 0 | 1

1 | 1 | 0

wouldn't I?

NO.

DeleteIf you consider a NN as given in question 2, with weights as -10, 20, -20 with NN equation -10 + (20*x_1) - (20*x_2) > 0. where threshold for activation is 0.

you will get output as follows:

x1 | x2 | Output | (>0 or not)

0 | 0 | -10 | 0

0 | 1 | -30 | 0

1 | 0 | 10 | 1

1 | 1 | -10 | 1

Which doesn't represent XOR at all.

There is a typo in Akshay's reply for the output of the last line. It should be "30," not "-10."

Delete@Jimmy, There is no typo in my reply (in last line).

Deletefor x1=1, x2=1, as per the equation, -10+20-20 = -10.

So the output is -10. (not 30)

Note: please check the equation in my reply.

please explain 2 one some clearly'i did not undertand what is the target of output.

ReplyDeleteI can't understand what exactly you want to ask.

Deletein 2nd question they ask Which of the following logical functions does it (approximately) compute?

ReplyDeleteout put answer what shoud come to satisfy the truth table. In 2 nd one first bit you answered This network outputs approximately 1 only when both inputs are 1.In bit 2 also same.out put howmuch should come to satisfy the truth table.(that means -30,20,10)

Even Though your question is not very clear to me, I am trying to answer it as per my understanding.

Delete1. In Q2(1), Ans is AND gate as Output is 1 when "both" the input are 1.

2. In Q2(2), Ans is OR gate as Output is 1 when "at least one" input is 1.

NOTE: Here we have considered activation threshold = 0.

3. If in Q2, we consider weights as -30, 20, 10 then the ans is AND gate (considering activation threshold = -1)

-30 | 20 | 10

1 | x1 | x2 Output

1 | 0 | 0 = -30 = 0

1 | 0 | 1 = -20 = 0

1 | 1 | 0 = -10 = 0

1 | 1 | 1 = 0 = 1

NOTE: If we consider activation threshold=0 here, then it will be ambiguous for x1=1, x2=1 case. It won't represent AND gate or any other logic gate.

Why question 1 option 2 is incorrect?

ReplyDeleteThe outputs of a neural network are not probabilities, so their sum need not be 1

DeleteTrue. But it represents classes. So exactly one class must be true for a training data. So sum of all the values must be 1. isn't it?

DeleteHi Bye, the sum could be 0(zero). Taking the Pedestrian-Car-Motocycle-Truck case in the video for example, think about what if the input is a, let's say a Ship?

DeleteI didn't get the question numbers 4 and 5 can you please explain in detail?

ReplyDeleteI mean how did writing the vectorized implementation here work in place of for loop? and similarly in question 5 how do I calculate whether output changes or remains same?

consider to the mnn with sigmoidal functions and the training data set x1:0.6,0.2 x2:0.1,0.3 t1:1,0 t2:0,1
