Deep learning: Branch of machine learning that uses
multiple layers of distributed representations (neural
networks) to recognize patterns in digital sounds, images,
or other data. For example, Google’s DeepDream photo-
editing software allows neural networks to “hallucinate”
patterns and images in a photo.
Neural networks: Computational approach that loosely
models how the brain solves problems with layers of inputs
and outputs. Rather than being programmed, the networks
are trained with several thousand cycles of interaction.
Businesses can use these to do a lot with a little; for
example, neural networks can generate image captions,
classify objects, or predict stock market fluctuations.
