Deep learning is a subset of machine learning where artificial neural networks — algorithms inspired by the human brain — learn from large amounts of data. Deep learning drives many artificial intelligence (AI) applications and services that improve automation, performing analytical and physical tasks without human intervention.

Core Components:

  • Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs): Composed of input, hidden, and output layers, ANNs are the backbone of deep learning..
  • Activation Functions: Functions like ReLU or Sigmoid that help neural networks make complex decisions..
  • Cost Functions: Measures how well the neural network performed to guide its training..
  • Backpropagation: The process by which neural networks learn from errors and adjust their weights..
  • Optimization Algorithms: Algorithms such as Gradient Descent that optimize neural networks to improve performance..
  • Overfitting & Regularization: Techniques to ensure that models generalize well to new, unseen data..
