Deep Learning: What it is, and What You Need to Know

Source: iStock While you likely have at least a vague sense that artificial intelligence is the future of the devices and services around you, you may or may not know much about the specific technologies that enable machines to process data and react intelligently — such as by recognizing objects or translating speech in real-time. The concept of deep learning, a technology that MIT Technology Review reports “attempts to mimic the activity in layers of neurons in the neocortex, the wrinkly 80 percent of the brain where thinking occurs” — can be especially difficult to wrap your head around. Curious about deep learning, and what you need to know about it? Here’s exactly how the stuff of science fiction films is coming to life. Deep learning software learns to recognize patterns in digital representations…
