What is the equivalent of "independent variables" in Samuel's terminology

Regarding the line in lesson-1 section A Bit of Deep Learning Jargon – “The predictions are calculated from the independent variable, which is the data not including the labels

So what is equivalent of “independent variables” in Samuel’s terminology? Is it inputs?

Hi KB Sharma

Yes the inputs are the independent variables and the outputs are the dependent variables. The automated / mechanism compares the calculated output with the observed output and adjusts the weights.
