Deep Learning Means Computers Have Mastered Basic Perception

Deep learning and big data are real revolutions shaping our world and increasing our world’s automation. But academics and engineers disagree on what deep learning actually is (or could be). Deep Learning is Basic Perception Computers can now, given some guidance, form opinions about fuzzy things. They are very good at spotting credit card fraud, similar images and security breaches. This is because the simulated neural patterns of machine deep learning correlate with our basic…

We now discover apps daily, purchase new hardware…

The Stanford SEE Open Programs – A Historic Milestone

  If you read HNews or follow the Y Combinator companies, you’ve probably heard about the new open Stanford Engineering programs. Recently, I got my confirmation email from SEE for the Artificial Intelligence class (www.ai-class.com).  These experiment in higher education will take the world by surprise and prepare a new generation of “self-actualized” leaders. Course Details A bold experiment in distributed education, “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” will be offered free and online to students worldwide…
