By the end of this year, it’s predicted that Deep Learning will be a core component in the tool-kit of 80 per cent of data scientists. That’s a pretty big jump considering machine learning and AI are still considered to be cutting edge technologies and Deep Learning goes even further than both.
Deep Learning is used by some of the world’s largest brands such as Google that cites it as the cornerstone of its voice image recognition algorithms. Netflix uses it to work out what you want to watch next, Amazon for what you’ll buy next, and even researchers at MIT use to predict the future. There are a growing number of tech vendors entering the space who are keen to discuss how this is the next generation of data science, but what exactly is it? And is it more than just another name for AI?
