Deep Learning (DL)

What is deep learning?

Deep learning is a class of machine learning methods and algorithms that uses deep neural networks for extracting features from data.

Why is it important?

Deep learning is, so far, one of the most potent approaches in machine learning. Deep neural networks allow computers to find patterns that are too complex for simple machine learning algorithms. Neural networks also work well with unstructured data: texts, images, sensor data. It makes them even more valuable, as traditional machine learning techniques require a lot of data preprocessing.
