Deep Learning

A form of machine learning with neural networks, loosely inspired by how neurons process information in the brain

It is a combined term for algorithms that both train and use very deep neural networks.

Deep learning is at the intersection of computer science, computational statistics and artificial intelligence and focuses on the design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms that allow computerised systems to derive complex models from incoming data.
