# Why do we have an MLP tag?

Ran across a question with the mlp tag today.

As of asking this question, the mlp tag has 52 questions and no tag description, and the (synonymous, I think) neural_network tag has 2,785 questions and a reasonable description.

Should we remove the mlp tag? And maybe edit the description of the neural_networks tag to mention the MLPs, if we don't want to drop that name (which is somewhat familiar, through SKLearn)?

• mlp is not technically synonymous with a neural net. It is a type of a neural net and used for a feedforward ANNs – Dawny33 Nov 25 '19 at 7:01
• So it is synonymous with DNNs, and maybe that tag description should say so explicitly – Itamar Mushkin Nov 26 '19 at 5:45
• Please feel free to propose an edit on the tag description – Dawny33 Nov 26 '19 at 9:29
• Ok, I submitted a proposal – Itamar Mushkin Nov 26 '19 at 10:10
