Learning about deep learning

The concept is certainly compelling. Having a machine capable of reacting to real-world visual, auditory or other type of data and then responding, in an intelligent way, has been the stuff of science fiction until very recently. We are now on the verge of this new reality with little general understanding of what it is that artificial intelligence, convolutional neural networks, and deep learning can (and can’t) do, nor what it takes to make them work. At the simplest level, much of the current efforts around deep learning involve very rapid recognition and classification of objects—whether visual, audible, or some other form of digital data. Using cameras, microphones and other types of sensors, data is input into a system that contains a multi-level set of filters that provide increasingly detailed…
