A perceptron is a type of artificial neuron that is mathematical and programmatic. It takes in many inputs and applies weights to them based on the importance of the inputs, and then adds a bias before using this mathematical approach to figure out a result. This result from the perceptron is then fed to a machine learning algorithm, such as logistic regression. We call this algorithm as an activation function, which is then is used to predict the final result of the outcome.
