The paper shows how different estimations can be applied to test the exactness of the neural associations. We separate the display of the Back spread estimation with changing getting ready plans and the ensuing power term in feed-forward neural associations. In a relationship, we analyze the essential backslide estimation, which makes a choice based on the value of an immediate blend of the features. In this paper, Neural Associations are used with an MNIST dataset of 70000 digits and 250 assorted creating styles. Logistic Regression is a measurable model that, in its fundamental structure, utilizes a strategic capacity to demonstrate a twofold reliant variable, albeit a lot more intricate expansions exist. In relapse examination, calculated relapse (or logit relapse) assesses the boundaries of a strategic model (a type of paired relapse). This equivalent examination shows the exactness of these computations in distinguishing physically composed digits, with Backpropagation unequivocally expecting close 95.06% of the test dataset when it was run multiple times, and the essential logistic regression correctly anticipating close 99% with a hidden layer and 92% without a hidden layer.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
