##### [Neural Networks] Drawbacks of Backpropagation

BP algorithm has been described in 'An Introduction to Backpropagation and Multilayer Perceptrons'. And the implement of the BP algorithm has been recorded at 'The Backpropagation Algorithm (Part I)' and 'The Backpropagation Algorithm (Part II)'. BP has worked in many applications, but there are too many drawbacks in the process. The basic BP algorithm is too slow for most practical applications that it might take days or even weeks in training. And these following 4 posts are some investigations to make the BP algorithm more practical and to speed it up.
