Harnessing crowds of humans to train machines

If you’ve recently searched your phone’s photo library using face recognition technology or read about the recent road tests of self-driving cars, you’ve seen applications of deep learning in action. Most of us still associate artificial intelligence with popular science fiction movies, but many real world applications of for these Technologies exist today that are changing how we work, play and live. Deep learning is a form of artificial intelligence that teaches machines to perform tasks through learned experience instead of by programming predefining logic. This approach mimics the way we as humans learn and is leading to incredible breakthroughs in algorithm performance across a number of fields because of advancements in accelerated computing, open source software, and broadly accessible training data. A terrific example of how this combination of…
