Is it possible to perform Neural Network in Excel with only spreadsheet without macro programming? Yes, this tutorial will explain how to do it step by step.

We all heard the exaggeration of the media about neural network that neural network is a kind of intelligence system. If you have ever learned about neural network, I want to ask a few simple questions:

  • How do you design a neural network that can do a simple subtraction like C = A-B?
  • How do you design a neural network that can do a simple multiplication like C=A.B?
  • How do you design a neural network that can do a simple division like C=A/B?
  • How do you design a neural network that can do Boolean operation like ((A XOR B) AND C) OR (A AND B)?
  • How do you design a neural network that can do a simple linear regression like y=m.x+c?
  • How do you design a neural network that can do a simple forecasting for time series data?

If neural network is indeed an intelligent system, why to answer the above simple and obvious questions seems to be very difficult?

Most the books about neural network are too much sophisticated that they ignore the very basic lessons. Most of the authors assume the most readers understand higher mathematics and you must know calculus and how to program in C++ or Python. Is there any hope that you can do neural network in a simple scientific calculator or in spreadsheet without any programming? That is where this Neural Network tutorial coming in.  If you just want to grasp what is neural network, how does it works and how can it be applied to solve the problems in your life (not to do research to build a new kind of neural network, but to use neural network for your daily life), then this tutorial is for you.

This tutorial emphasizes on the numerical examples, spreadsheet solutions as comprehensive projects and how to apply neural network to solve the real world problems from data to forecasting. This tutorial includes some very basic and obvious questions that many other neural network books simply does not provide any clue or answer. This neural network tutorial is really for beginners, to fill the gap of knowledge in the mathematics and programming. After reading this tutorial, you will have more confidence on what you can do and what you cannot do with neural network. It is your self-confidence that is very valuable, goes beyond any price.

We will start with the basic simplest neuron model, and then we will develop it into more and more complex network architecture. Depending on the network architecture, the non-linear function inside the neuron and the learning methods and its purposes, different name of neural network models was developed. However, in this tutorial we will discuss the most famous feedforward network such as McCulloch and Pit, Perceptron, ADaptive LInear Neuron (ADALINE), Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP), Many ADaptive LInear Neuron (MADALINE) and Back Propagation Network.

Through the work numerical examples, you will learn step by step how to use the existing neural network and then how to build your own neural network that can learn from examples using mere spreadsheet of Microsoft Excel, without macro programming. Indeed, this is unique tutorial is useful for people who want to learn neural network in a very fast way. The spreadsheets companion of this tutorial are available for download only for those who purchase the full version of this tutorial.

The author assumes the readers have no prior knowledge on data science or neural network. The mathematics level has been pulled down to a high school level or into the beginning of college level. There is no need to understand calculus deeply and there is no programming is necessary. However, the author also assumes the readers know how to write formulas and how to use spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel. This is not Excel tutorial for beginners. In fact, after learning this book, you will appreciate how to use the spreadsheet in more powerful ways.

More than 50 numerical examples and spreadsheet comprehensive solutions are provided in this tutorial. The examples are given in boxes to represent the steps you need to master before going further. Exercises at the end of each section are very useful to explore the variation of values.

This ebook is unique! You cannot find this information of doing Neural Network only using Spreadsheet without programming anywhere else!

What is Neural Network?

Artificial Neural Network is a family of models that intended to mimic the neural cells in the brain. The unit processing element is a simple model called a neuron. Each neuron is basically a function that can receive many inputs and produces only one output. Combining many neurons into a network of neurons is what we called as Artificial Neural Network or simply Neural Network for short.
