Hello,
I hope you enjoying good health.
I have a quick one.
Is multicollinearity a problem in neural networks as it’s in multiple linear regression?
Thank you in advance.
Stay Safe.
Best Regards.

HI Hady,
Multicollinearity is not a problem in NNs.
The main reason for that is that multicollinearity is an issue which only arises when we have linear relationships.
NNs with more than 1 hidden layer already don’t qualify for this.
Best,
Iliya
