Deep Learning: Definition, Resources, Comparison with Machine Learning

Deep learning is sometimes referred to as the intersection between machine learning and artificial intelligence. It is about designing algorithms that can make robots intelligent, such a face recognition techniques used in drones to detect and target terrorists, or pattern recognition / computer vision algorithms to automatically pilot a plane, a train, a boat or a car.

Many deep learning algorithms (clustering, pattern recognition, automated bidding, recommendation engine, and so on)…
