Deep Learning is a type of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that mimics the way people gain certain forms of knowledge. It’s extremely beneficial to data scientists who are tasked with collecting, analyzing, and evaluating large amounts of data; deep learning makes this process faster and easier. Deep Learning is considered a subfield of machine learning, involving algorithms inspired by the structure and function of the brain called ‘artificial neural networks’.
Deep Learning is different from your standard AI, where it often requires zero user input whatsoever. Many machine-learning systems often need an administrator to watch over the process and ensure there aren’t code failures and the software/hardware is running correctly overall. Deep Learning can often run entirely on its own; without user input while running. Below are a pair of examples from our daily lives – see if you use DL in your daily life already!
