In this article, we are going to talk about one of the most interesting subjects I have faced since I discovered deep learning: Direct Feedback Alignment (DFA). This method is an incredible and mind-bending alternative to the standard deep learning training method, the backpropagation, while allowing for more efficient training. By the end of this article, you’ll understand how mixing neural networks, …
