Iteration (machine learning)

A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

An iteration is a term used in machine learning and indicates the number of times the algorithm's parameters are updated. Exactly what this means will be context dependent. A typical example of a single iteration of training of a neural network would include the following steps:

  1. processing the training dataset batch
  2. calculating the cost function
  3. backpropagation and adjustment of all weighting factors

Training of a neural network will require many iterations.
