Another advantage of neural networks such as perceptrons is redundancy. In the brain, the loss of a few neurons will not eliminate a memory or a specific type of calculation. While each neuron in the network makes a contribution, there is some overlap, or redundancy, so that the absence of a neuron or two does not affect the result. Redundancy is important because neurons continually die in the brain, but memories are relatively unaffected. ) Neural networks in the brain are also able to produce accurate results even if the input is “noisy” or only partially revealed.

The decision to fire can be triggered by exceeding a threshold, but decisions can also be made with more complicated methods. Rosenblatt showed that perceptrons have the capacity for associative memory, meaning that a specific output is associated with a specific Artificial neural networks input. In other words, the perceptron will produce that output when given the correct input. This procedure is similar to the memory triggered in a person’s brain by the image, say, of a friend; a person sees the face of a friend, and the name of the friend comes to mind.
