Taking a Deep Learning dive with The Fifth Elephant

Last Modified: Mon, Jun 27 2016. 09 11 PM ISTwhen Google Inc recently announced that their algorithms could not only ‘see’ a dog but also identify it as a Pomeranian, it heralded the maturity of Deep Learning techniques Mumbai: There is tremendous buzz around machine learning, broadly described as a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. However, despite an exponential increase in power, computers have typically proved incompetent at things that are really simple to human beings—like recognizing the dog in a picture containing a dog, or understanding speech. The trend, however, is changing. Consider ‘Deep Learning’, which describes a collection of techniques that allow computational tasks that were previously thought impossible. Facebook Inc, for instance, uses it to…
