Grokking Deep Learning summary

Artificial intelligence is one of the most exciting technologies of the century, and deep learning is in many ways the “brain” behind some of the smartest artificial intelligence systems in the world. Freely based on the behavior of neurons inside the human brain, these systems are quickly catching up with the intelligence of their human creators, beating the world champion of Go, achieving superhuman performances in video games, driving cars, translating languages ​​and sometimes even helping the police. fight against crime. Deep Learning is a revolution that is changing all industries around the world. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle and ePub format from Manning Publications.

On technology

Deep learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, teaches computers to learn using neural networks, a technology inspired by the human brain. Online text translation, self-driving cars, personalized product recommendations, and virtual voice assistants are just some of the exciting modern advances made possible by deep learning.
