      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

MADE A SIMPLE NEURAL NETWORK, BUT NOT SURE IF I DID IT RIGHT

9 posts in this topic

A simple single unit adaptive network:

graphic2.gif

The network has 2 inputs, and one output. All are binary. The output
is

1 if W0 *I0 + W1 * I1+ Wb > 0 

0 if W0 *I0 + W1 * I1+ Wb <= 0 

We want it to learn simple OR: output a 1 if either I0 or I1 is 1.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Solving this problem i have made this-

#include <iostream>
 
struct Newron
{
   int value;
   int weight;
};
 
int main()
{
  Newron input_one, input_two, output;
  int bias = 0;
 
  input_one.weight = 1;
  input_two.weight = 1;
 
  std::cin >> input_one.value;
  std::cin >> input_two.value;
 
  output.value = (input_one.value * input_one.weight) + (input_two.value * input_two.weight) + bias;
 
  if(output.value > 0)
    std::cout << 1 << std::endl;
  else
    std::cout << 0 << std::endl;
 
  return 0;
}

Is it the right way?

If not then how it can be done?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

I can't comment, but I'll suggest you a) DON'T MAKE YOUR TITLE LOOK LIKE IT'S SHOUTING, and b) use [ code ][ /code ] (without spaces) tages for code to help with formatting/highlighting.

 

Good luck!

Sorry for the title :D And i changed the code formatting, but couldn't be able to change the title.

Hello

This seems to be a good start for me smile.png

In fact you are precisely describing (wanting ?) Perceptron model

 

This is pseudo-code :

class Neuron
{
	float [] inputs; // (with : true is 1.0f, false is 0.0f)
	float [] weights;

	Constructor(integer nbInputs)
	{
		inputs=new array [nbInputs +1] (+1 is for including the bias). Or getting a reference on an external array.
		weights=new array [nbInputs +1]
		
		fill the weights array with float random values between -1 and 1
		set 1.0f in the position corresponding to the bias in the inputs array(typically, first or last position)
	}
	
	float computeOutput()
	{
		sum=dotProduct(inputs,weights);
		return sum>0.0f;
	}

	void learn(float desiredOutput,float learningRate) // adaptation of the weights
	{
		float output=computeOutput();
		float deltaOutput=desiredOutput-output; (so -1.0f or 0.0f or 1.0f)
		
		for each position in the arrays
		{
			weights[i]+=learningRate*inputs[i]*deltaOutput;
		}
	}

};

 

Hope it makes sense rolleyes.gif

 

for a OR, it should converge with : w1=w2=lambda, and wBias=0. With lambda>0

 

Good luck

Thank you very much :D Most of the part is clear to me, but I didn't understood the learningRate argument in the learn() method. Do I have to adjust it so that the network can learn or adjust weight on its own?

The learning rate is just an user-defined constant, here. It's usually a value between 0 and 1.

It's like defining the 'step' of the adaptation.

 

I would suggest to try low values first  (0.2 ? even less ?) because inputs[i]*deltaOutput is here a huge value : -1 or 0 or 1 !

 

Afterwards, the goal is to maximize the learning rate so that the learning process is quicker but still accurate enough for the wanted approximation.

 

Hope I'm still clear smile.png (sorry for my english, I'm getting tiredph34r.png )

 

Bye

Don't worry, your english is as awesome as your explanation :D I am getting a hold of this, but I need to experiment a lot before I can understand it clearly. But you answered my question and that's enough for starting experiment without any confusion.

 

Thanks a lot for your help :D

I would like to add another little thing :

 

What I described is the Perceptron as it was designed by Frank Rosenblatt (original version)

However there's another (very slightly different !) version in which -1 and 1 are used instead of 0 and 1 to encode booleans.

 

 

In term of learning efficiency it's better because  :

  • with 0 and 1, the weights will evolve only when deltaOutput is not zero and input is not zero.
  • with -1 and 1, the weights will always evolves when deltaOutput is not zero.

 

And this is 'nothing' to change :

  • change input encoding (so no more 0 and 1, but -1 and 1)
  • change the activation function :  sum>0.0f ? 1.0f : -1.0f

Bye smile.png

Thanks again for the help. You know what, I was going to ask you the same thing. I was looking for some other neural networks, then I came across Hopfield network and there is a step when we need to convert the boolean(1 and 0) to 1 and -1. Then I was thinking if this could be done with Perceptron too. And before I could ask, you answered it :)
