Deep learning machines are reincarnated versions of previous machine learning avatars like neural networks and fuzzy systems. What separates them from machine learning 1.0 is their ability to create features on their own instead of handcrafted features as in other algorithms. There are different flavors of deep learning from deep learning networks to auto encoders to deep unsupervised approaches. This talk from Dr. Bharatheesh will shed some light on the origins of deep learning, different approaches currently used and applications of deep learning in variety of domains (visual, sound, text and time series), along with tools that can be used for embedding DLMs in your applications.
