What is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is a type of machine learning in which computers form large artificial neural networks that resemble those found in the human brain.

Deep learning definition

In deep learning, large artificial neural networks are fed learning algorithms and ever-increasing amounts of data, continuously improving their ability to "think" and "learn.” "Deep" refers to the many layers the neural network accumulates over time, with performance improving as the network gets deeper. While most deep learning is currently done with human supervision, the aim is to create neural networks that are able to train themselves and "learn" independently.
