This chapter gives an overview of the techniques for training a deep neural network. Here, we briefly discuss
  • How learned information flows through a neural network

  • The role of the cost function at the output layer of the network

  • One-hot encoding and the softmax activation function for determining class membership at the output layer of a classification problem

  • The backpropagation algorithm for improving the learned parameters of the network

  • Activation functions that enable the neural network to learn non-linear patterns

In this chapter, ...
