Convolutional Neural Networks Power Ahead

While the term may not be immediately recognizable, convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are already part of our daily lives—and they are expected to become even more significant in the near future. Convolutional neural networks are a form of machine learning modeled on the way the brain’s visual cortex distinguishes one object from another. That helps explain why the most common use today is for image recognition, which is where this market is gaining real traction today. But it also has many potential uses far beyond image recognition as power is reduced and performance is improved. “The work that happens at a place like Facebook or Yahoo or Google to try to find you in all those pictures people are uploading, that’s largely done with neural networks already,” observed Drew Wingard,…
