I'm trying to write a simple neural network with the backpropagation algorithm. After reading a thousand papers :) I think I have understand it quite good, but I miss something in the backpropagation step. I can calculate all the deltas and update weights, but what about the neuron bias? It will always be fixed or I should update it as if it were a weight? Thank you nICO

you can think of the bias as an additional input into each neuron, with a constant value of 1 (or -1, it makes no difference). Each neuron therefore, will have an additional weight associated with the bias input. It is this weight that the backprop algorithm should update.

Ok, thank you! It works!!!

Btw, can someone give me a link to some explanation on unsupervised networks?

Yes, thank you, that's useful.
I also found useful information in the sites in the links section of the site. (I'm currently reading NEAT documentation... seems really interesting.)

Isnt each link weight feeding into the nodes Summation to be corrected by the backprop??
