4. Building the Network

Richard McKeon1

Now we are going to build a three-layered neural network using simple electronic components. This network will have two inputs, two neurons in the hidden layer, and a single output. That might sound a little intimidating, but I have included plenty of step-by-step instructions together with photographs and drawings, so hopefully everything will go smoothly. We’ll take it one layer at a time, including
  1. 1.

    Power supply

  2. 2.

    Input layer

  3. 3.

    Hidden layer and

  4. 4.

    Output layer



This circuit probably doesn’t resemble how the brain actually functions at all. You can’t get inside ...
