Edits 11/21/17: I think I misused the term ‘perceptron’ in this essay when referring to artificial neurons, apparently this term is reserved for a very specific type of early single layer network for linear classification and does not generalize to deeper networks / other activation functions. Removing references to ‘perceptron’ and replacing with the more generic ‘neuron’.
