A New Backpropagation Algorithm without Gradient Descent

25 Jan 2018Varun RanganathanS. Natarajan

The backpropagation algorithm, which had been originally introduced in the 1970s, is the workhorse of learning in neural networks. This backpropagation algorithm makes use of the famous machine learning algorithm known as Gradient Descent, which is a first-order iterative optimization algorithm for finding the minimum of a function...
