Neural networks lottery numbers
First of all, do not even try. It is just a geek and fancy way to generate numbers.
Last Wednesday, the lottery was accumulated in 115.000.000, 00 BRL (about 70.000.000, 00 USD) and I needed to have a try.
Well, I have never played with Artificial Neural Networks, and I knew how it worked. So it was time to give a try.For Dummies - Section 1
How Feedforward Artificial Neural Networks works
A Feedforward NN (neural network) is a set of valued nodes (normally with values from -1.0 to 1.0), connected to each other. This nodes emulates neurons and its connections, the dendrites (input) and axioms (outputs). The values are the strength of the connection between each neuron.
When a data is inputed into a dendrite, it will use an activation function to see if that data stimulates the neuron. If the neuron is stimulated, it will send the data to the other neurons (that accumulate the data), modifying its data, according to it own value.
When the other layers of neurons are queried, they sum the data and apply the same activation function and they keep forwarding the data through the NN as long they are activated by the function.
As soon the data reaches the ‘leaf’ neurons, they gonna magically output the result.
But wait. How the f*** they learn to output the expected information at the ‘leaf’ neurons?
