The multilayer perceptron (MLP) is the fundamental example of a deep neural network. The architecture of a MLP consists of multiple hidden layers to capture more complex relationships that exist in the training dataset. Another name for the MLP is the deep feedforward neural network (DFN). An illustration of an MLP is shown in Figure 31-1.
