This paper presents a novel approach to train classifiers implemented as a shallow neural network. The proposed solution is based on the original Perceptron algorithm but extends to the multi-hyperplane case. Consequently, it allows of solving not only linearly separable problems. Besides simplicity, the advantage of the method is its tolerance to imbalanced data, which can occur in practice. The applicability of the method has been demonstrated on several artificial and on real-life datasets.
