Learning Neural Network and Deep Learning

Artificial Intelligence is a combination of various sub topics. Whether it be Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Neural Network etc, each one of them finds shelter under artificial intelligence. Below are the basics of two important topics – Neural Network and Deep Learning.

Neural Networks: Neural network is modelled in the same way as human brain. It compromises various algorithms and aims to find relationship in data provided by us through processes that mimics like human brains. It is one of the trending technologies and is finding its applications in various fields like trading, medicine, pattern recognition etc.

Deep Learning: Deep Learning is basically a network composed of several layers. It is also known as ‘stacked neural networks’. It is a subfield of machine learning and is inspired by the structure and function of brain. It can be widely used in classification, clustering, predictions etc.

We are walking towards the era where technology will dominate and the main technology will be artificial intelligence. Hence it is important to get an insight of what we will be with in future. For a beginner, these topics might be confusing but they form the crust of artificial intelligence.
