Bayes: Well, this is 50/50 situation. I’am not fully convinced

Jane: Nurses!?

Nurse 1: He is your child!

Nurse 2: Agreed

He was so naive..

Neural Network

Rosen Blatt, a freshman, joins The Perceptron, a school choir for women, which participates in an a capella competition. The choir girls inject some energy into their repertoire and start to compete with the male rivals.

Surprisingly, they discover that girl with the most weight, Fat Amy, has the biggest influence on the quality of their singing.

The girls master the repertoire through arduous training, and changing their team members (called Inputs) in order to achieve the best result.
