For the following set of examples:

  1. Calculate the decision tree that would be produced by ID3, show all of your work.
  2. Assuming a multlayer percentron with one hidden layer of four units and that all weights are initially 0. Then set the weight from each hidden unit to the 1 unit to 0.1 times the unit number (first unit's weight to the 1 unit is 0.1, second is 0.2, etc.). Show your input and output representation, then show the weight change calculated for the first two steps of incremental training. Show your work.
