In previous articles, I have referred to the concepts of gradient descent and backpropagation for many times.

Using the notation above, backpropagation attempts to minimize the following error function with respect to the neural network's weights: E(X,θ)=12N∑i=1N(yi^−yi)2E(X, \theta) = \frac{1}{2N}\sum_{i=1}^N\left( \hat{y_i} - y_i\right)^{2}E(X,θ)=2N1​i=1∑N​(yi​^​−yi​)2. by calculating, for each weight wijk,w_{ij}^k,wijk​, the value of ∂E∂wijk\frac{\partial E}{\partial w_{ij}^k}∂wijk​∂E​. With each piece you remove or place, you change the possible outcomes of the game. This approach was developed from the analysis of a human brain. We will repeat this process for the output layer neurons, using the output from the hidden layer neurons as inputs. and easy to mold (with domain knowledge encoded in the learning environment) into very specific and efficient algorithms. The level of adjustment is determined by the gradients … Since hidden layer nodes have no target output, one can't simply define an error function that is specific to that node. And changing the wrong piece makes the tower topple, putting your further from your goal. Application of these rules is dependent on the differentiation of the activation function, one of the reasons the heaviside step function is not used (being discontinuous and thus, non-differentiable). Thus, applying the partial derivative and using the chain rule gives. Figure 3 The Back-Propagation Algorithm. Forward propagation is just taking the outputs of one layer and making them the inputs of the next layer. aik=bik+∑j=1rk−1wjikojk−1=∑j=0rk−1wjikojk−1,a_i^k = b_i^k + \sum_{j = 1}^{r_{k-1}} w_{ji}^k o_j^{k-1} = \sum_{j = 0}^{r_{k-1}} w_{ji}^k o_j^{k-1},aik​=bik​+j=1∑rk−1​​wjik​ojk−1​=j=0∑rk−1​​wjik​ojk−1​.
