What Is Deep Learning?

Deep Learning, also known as deep neural learning or deep neural network, is an aspect of artificial intelligence that depends on data representations rather than task-specific algorithms. It allows the user to run supervised, semi-supervised, and unsupervised learning.

Deep Learning is inspired by the ways humans process information and then communicate through our own biological neural networks. These learning algorithms are able to process vast amounts of data, taking those datasets and building essential meaning. It's an expansion of machine learning, allowing the user to develop broader, more in-depth solutions as opposed to highly task-specific ones because of its artificial neural networks.

Deep Learning In Business

Deep learning models are transforming the way we approach business. Humans produce a massive amount of data, but up to now, we've been unable to use it fully. Now, deep learning algorithms are providing learning techniques and real-world solutions based on these large data sets.

Business use cases include Netflix and Amazon recommendations based on single and multi-user behavior patterns and nontraditional cases such as using the algorithms to identify pests in agricultural practices.

Deep Learning Courses and Certifications

edX offers quite a collection of courses in partnership with some of the foremost universities in the field. You can take Microsoft's Deep Learning Explained for a primer in the essential functions and move on to IBM's Deep Learning certification course. There, you'll learn all about deep networks and using these machine learning algorithms to build language processing models, and train algorithms in convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks among others.

A wide range of other courses flesh out the possibilities of deep learning in image classification and recognition, building hidden layers for unsupervised learning, and using computing power for state of the art speech recognition. The courses offer you a rare chance to get inside the black box of deep learning and build your own solutions.

Explore Careers in Deep Learning

Deep learning has the potential to change the way businesses make decisions now that we can take massive amounts of unstructured data and build programs that can analyze natural language, sentiment, and other complicated data the way the human brain would, only better. The kind of computing power you have with deep learning could revolutionize the ways businesses make decisions and design customer journeys. Providing those insights makes you highly valuable for some of the world's most cutting edge companies.
