Using the Perceptron Algorithm to Find Consistent Hypotheses

Anthony, M. and Shawe-Taylor, J. (1993) Using the Perceptron Algorithm to Find Consistent Hypotheses Combinatorics, Probability and Computing, 2, pp. 385-387.

Record type: Article


The perceptron learning algorithm yields quite naturally an algorithm for finding a linearly separable boolean function consistent with a sample of such a function. Using the idea of a specifying sample, we give a simple proof that this algorithm is not efficient, in general.
