Meaning of the lab?

The main objective of the lab was to plot the lines, so that all the possible inputs would end up mapped to a vector that always contains two 0’s and one positive integer.

For instance:
0 → [2, 0, 0]
2 → [0, 1, 0]
-2 → [6, 0, 0]

I don’t get why the objective of the lab was exactly this and what is the insight you want to emphasize on?

Hey @popaqy,
Can you please specify the exact lab in Week 2 of Course 2 to which your query pertains to?


The lab about ReLU Activation

I think that the goal of the lab is for us to see that with ReLUs, we can produce a linear piecewise function that approximates a curve.

ReLU makes the bendings possible.
