What is Deep Learning?

Deep Learning

Deep learning, a transformative subfield of artificial intelligence, empowers computers to learn by example much like humans, finding applications across myriad sectors from autonomous vehicles to voice-activated devices. This machine learning technique leverages neural networks composed of interconnected nodes organized in layers – the input layer which receives data, numerous hidden layers that process and analyze information, and an output layer that delivers the final results. Key to its popularity is its impressive accuracy, often outpacing human performance, and its ability to perform “end-to-end learning,” autonomously extracting features from raw data and executing tasks like classification. Deep learning’s scalability with data and diverse applications, spanning automated driving, aerospace, medical research, industrial automation, and electronics, underscore its potential in shaping the future of artificial intelligence.
