A brief history of ANNs

Inspired by the working principles of biological neurons, Warren McCulloch and Walter Pitts proposed the first artificial neuron model in 1943 in terms of a computational model of nervous activity. This simple model of a biological neuron, also known as an artificial neuron (AN), has one or more binary (on/off) inputs and one output only.

An AN simply activates its output when more than a certain number of its inputs are active. For example, here we see a few ANNs that perform various logical operations. In this example, we assume that a neuron is activated only when at least two of its inputs are active:

ANNs performing ...
