DistanceNeuronCompute Method

Computes output value of neuron.

Namespace:  Accord.Neuro
Assembly:  Accord.Neuro (in Accord.Neuro.dll) Version: 3.8.0
public override double Compute(
	double[] input

Type: SystemDouble
Input vector.

Return Value

Type: Double
Returns neuron's output value.
ArgumentExceptionWrong length of the input vector, which is not equal to the expected value.

The output value of distance neuron is equal to the distance between its weights and inputs - sum of absolute differences. The output value is also stored in Output property.

Note Note
The method may be called safely from multiple threads to compute neuron's output value for the specified input values. However, the value of Output property in multi-threaded environment is not predictable, since it may hold neuron's output computed from any of the caller threads. Multi-threaded access to the method is useful in those cases when it is required to improve performance by utilizing several threads and the computation is based on the immediate return value of the method, but not on neuron's output property.
