Deep Learning, as a branch of Machine Learning, employs algorithms to process data and imitate the thinking process, or to develop abstractions. Deep Learning (DL) uses layers of algorithms to process data, understand human speech, and visually recognize objects. Information is passed through each layer, with the output of the previous layer providing input for […]

Non-relational databases (aka NoSQL), in many different variations, have become a popular database model for handling Big Data. They use two novel concepts, making them different from earlier, “classical” database models. The concepts having so much impact are horizontal scaling, spreading out the storage and work, and eliminating the use of “Structured Query Language” (SQL) […]

Researchers have tried for decades to create computers capable of learning. Recently, using the human brain as a model, they have had some success. Complicated algorithms have been developed, allowing computers to learn on a limited scale. Deep Learning (DL) is the name used for the process of computers “learning” appropriate responses as they interact […]
