Deep learning uses neural networks to identify patterns. Neural networks allow us to sequence “layers” of computing, with each layer using learning algorithms such as unsupervised learning, supervised learning, and reinforcement learning. Deep learning has taken off in the last few years, but it has been around for much longer.
Adam Gibson founded Skymind, the company behind Deeplearning4j. Deeplearning4j is a distributed deep learning library for Scala and Java. It integrates with Hadoop and Spark, and is specifically designed to run in business environments on distributed GPUs and CPUs. Adam joins the show today to discuss the history and future of deep learning.
