The human brain makes it look easy. What our eyes see, we decode immediately and effortlessly. But is it that simple? In truth, how we process images is staggeringly complex.
Inspired in part by our remarkable neurons, deep learning is a fast-growing area in machine learning research that shows promising breakthroughs in speech, text and image recognition.
It’s based on endowing a neural network with many hidden layers, enabling a computer to learn tasks, organize information and find patterns on its own.
Recently, SAS took on a classical problem in machine learning research, the MNIST database, a data set containing thousands of handwritten digit images.
Learn how we did – and what it reveals about the future of deep learning.
