Introduction to the perceptron (LTHC)

 

Description and objectives:

In this project the student will familiarize itself with the problem of classification via the perceptron. Classical results on the capacity of the  perceptron for random inputs in R^n and a simple perceptron learning algorithm wil be studied through the literature.

In a second phase the student will numerically investigate simple algorithms for simple models of structured sparse inputs.
