dml_neural_network {DMLLZU}R Documentation

Double Machine Learning based on neural network

Description

Each node represents a specific output function, known as the excitation function.It is a mathematical model or a computational model that imitates the structure and function of biological net. It is calculated by the connection of a large number of artificial neurons, mainly composed of nodes and the mutual connections between nodes. Each connection between two nodes represents a weighted value for the signal passing through the connection, known as the weight. The output of the network is different according to the connection mode of the network, the weight value and the excitation function.
