Deep Learning

Deep Learning is a type of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that helps computers learn by example. It is made up of a collection of algorithms that can detect patterns in data to make predictions. When you give a deep learning system a lot of data (like photos or text) it will use what it knows to make educated guesses about what the data means. For example, a deep learning system could be given lots of photos of cats and it could learn what a cat looks like and how to recognize it in any photo.
