The question is: can exist a parallel or serial neural network or someone talked about this? For explanation, in the network a single record in a data set enter in the input layer as a value between 0 and 1, but, could i interpretate the value parallely as an array of bits (so i need an input layer as large as the number of bits composing the value) or even serially? or this is a bad technic?
Imagine a number (es. 5) that is interpretated as an n-bits values (101) in a 3-way input layer instead of a degree (0,?) in a 1-way input layer.
I'm a novice in neural network and the question could be stupid. Sorry if it is.
