================================================================================= The Perceptron algorithm is a type of supervised learning algorithm used for binary classification tasks. It is one of the earliest forms of artificial neural networks, which was developed by Frank Rosenblatt in 1957. The Perceptron is a simplified model of a biological neuron and serves as a building block for more complex neural network architectures. The key overview of perceptron algorithm is:
Weighted_sum = w_{1} * x_{1} + w_{2} * x_{2} + ... + w_{n} * x_{n}  [3870a] Where:  [3870b] Where: The update rule of θ_{j} is given by,  [3870c] Equation 3870c indicates that the weight updates is given by,
Output = 1 (if Weighted_sum >= Threshold)  [3870d] Δw_{i} = Learning_rate * (Target  Output) * x_{i} where:
(a)
(b)
Note that Perceptron algorithm does not use Sigmoid function as its activation function. The Perceptron algorithm uses a step function (also known as a threshold function) as its activation function. A perceptron, as a singlelayer neural network, is only capable of learning linearly separable patterns in data. It cannot effectively handle datasets that require nonlinear decision boundaries for accurate classification. However, the limitations of perceptrons can be overcome by using multilayer perceptrons (MLPs) or more complex neural network architectures, allowing for the learning of nonlinear relationships in data. ============================================
