Deep learning is a type of machine learning that uses artificial neural networks to learn complex patterns in data. It is called “deep” learning because it involves training artificial neural networks with many layers, or “depths,” of interconnected neurons. These layers allow the network to learn and represent increasingly abstract concepts as the data flows through the network.
Deep learning algorithms are particularly effective at processing large amounts of data and recognizing patterns that are not easily recognizable by humans. They have been used to achieve state-of-the-art results in many tasks, such as image and speech recognition, language translation, and predictive modeling.
There are several types of deep learning algorithms, including:
Convolutional neural networks (CNNs): These are a type of neural network that are specifically designed to process and analyze visual data, such as images and video. CNNs are commonly used in tasks such as image and facial recognition. They work by applying a set of filters to the input data, which extract features such as edges and patterns from the data.
Recurrent neural networks (RNNs): These are a type of neural network that are designed to process sequential data, such as time series data or natural language. RNNs are commonly used in tasks such as language translation and text generation. They work by processing the data one element at a time, and using the output of one element as input to the next element.
Generative adversarial networks (GANs): These are a type of neural network that consists of two networks, a generator and a discriminator, that compete with each other to produce the most realistic
