Exercise 1.4 - Are we supposed to use a computer to calculate?
 
Hi,

Exercise 1.4 - Are we supposed to use a computer to generate the data and then program a perceptron? What programming language? What do students at Cal Tech use? and on EdX?

Does the book ever explicitly state if things are to be done by hand or by computer?

++Regards
Grant

Exercise 1.4 is meant to play with computers. Have fun with whatever programming platform of your choice. My NTU class seems to be using python or C more often. Hope this helps.

Yes thanks for you reply. I'm going to try C++.
