Tech Insights: Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and the Future of HR

We all know that computers are getting better at things like image recognition and translating languages. What you may not know is that for 10 years after the turn of the century there was very little progress. We had hit an R&D wall and it was only when researchers (many funded by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) developed a technique they call “deep learning” that we began making rapid advances. There are a couple of really special things about deep learning. What is special about deep learning One is that the same algorithms are useful in different cognitive domains including language, image processing, and recommendation engines. The intelligence, if we want to use that word, is general purpose. Another special quality is that you don’t have to tell the…
