I had an opportunity to answer some questions about deep learning for Dagogo Altraide, aka ColdFusion’s latest video, “Why Deep Learning Now”, developed in collaboration with Intel.
I found Dagogo’s explanation of deep learning one of the clearest of I’ve seen online. He did a phenomenal job of juxtaposing the most visually evocative applications of AI with an intuitive introduction. I especially liked that he pointed that deep learning is useful now because of the advances in computational power - perhaps not obvious for the developer of algorithms who sees them as being the magical element. The combination of algorithms and computational power has made deep learning possible. This is a useful starting point when contemplating how technology will change society in the future, largely driven by increased computational resources and unforeseeable algorithms.
Hopefully we’ll have a chance to collaborate on a project again.
