Systematic structuring – learning algorithm

So far, we have theoretically defined the learning process and how it is carried out. However, in practice, we must dive a little bit deeper into the mathematical logic, the learning algorithm itself. A learning algorithm is a procedure that drives the learning process of neural networks and is strongly determined by the neural network architecture. From the mathematical point of view, one wishes to find the optimal weights W that can drive the cost function C(X,[Y]) to the lowest possible value.

In general, this process is carried out in the fashion presented in the following flowchart:
