HTML presentation submitted for CT349: Neural Networks
This document describes the theory behind the threshold logic unit (TLU), as described by McCulloch and Pitts (1943). The report details how the threshold logic unit is a simplified simulation of a biological neuron. Parts of the TLU directly correspond to parts of the biological neuron.
The report also details how the TLU is in general much simpler than the biological neuron that it simulates, however when these threshold logic units are combined to form networks they are able to compute any given linear function given a sufficently large network.
