Below is the updated section, and the diagram has also been updated too.
Let’s press on to the second training data example at x = 1.0. Using A = 0.3083 we have y = 0.3083 * 1.0 = 0.3083. The desired value was 2.9 so the error is (2.9 - 0.3083) = 2.5917. The ΔA = L (E / x) = 0.5 * 2.5917 / 1.0 = 1.2958. The even newer A is now 0.3083 + 1.2958 = 1.6042.
Let’s visualise again the initial, improved and final line to see if moderating updates leads to a better dividing line between ladybird and caterpillar regions.
This is really good!
Even with these two simple training examples, and a relatively simple update method using a moderating learning rate, we have very rapidly arrived at a good dividing line y = Ax where A is 1.6042.
