This post is made in introduction of a new YouTube series titled Deep Learning Deathmatch. In this series, a deep learning based AI that relies only on visual input is pitted against video game bosses. The resulting battle is recorded, edited, and compiled into a video. In the first video in the series, the AI fights the Oasis boss in Path of Exile.
More videos are available on my YouTube channel.
This post is part of a series on artificial neural networks (ANN) in TensorFlow and Python.

This post presents a short script that plots neural network performance on high-dimensional binary data using MatPlotLib in Python. Binary vectors, or vectors only containing 0 and 1, can be useful for representing categorical data or discrete phenomena. The code in this post is available on GitHub.

Artificial neural networks have regained popularity in machine learning circles with recent advances in deep learning. Deep learning techniques trace their origins back to the concept of back-propagation in multi-layer perceptron (MLP) networks, the topic of this post.
Multi-Layer Perceptron Networks for Regression
A MLP network consists of layers of artificial neurons connected by weighted edges. Neurons are denoted for the -th neuron in the -th layer of the MLP from left to right top to bottom. Inputs are fed into the leftmost layer and propagate through the network along weighted edges until reaching the final, or output, layer. An example of a MLP network can be seen below in Figure 1.
