Systems infrastructure for deep learning software in flux

Deep learning appeared after a long gestation, or all of a sudden. You can take your pick, depending on where you were when mainstream media discovered a collection of statistical and artificial intelligence techniques that seemed to promise a new era of automated predictive analytics.The vote here is for a long gestation, although it’s fair to say there is some suddenness about the way deep learning software is pushing a new class of analytics in which applications repeatedly churn through large sets of data, learning to predict likely outcomes as they go. A lengthy birthing process seems in play because, really, deep learning is an updated take on the machine learning process, which in turn was a new take on neural networks, an early form of artificial intelligence in which…
