Writing for Wall Street Cheat Sheet, Jess Bolluyt recently opined, “In a few years, the Internet could look like a very different place than it is today. We’ll be able to complete searches by voice, more efficiently search for images by the people or objects they contain, or use video analysis tools to see videos or ads that are more relevant to the content we’re viewing. The technologies that will enable all of these improvements are part of one of the most interesting areas of artificial intelligence research: deep learning, a type of artificial intelligence that involves processing data through a network of simulated ‘neurons’ that have been trained using data derived from audio, images, and other types of input.”

He goes on, “Deep learning has… given rise to dramatic advances in processing images, with Technology Review reporting that Facebook researchers used the technique to build a system that can determine almost as well as a human whether two different photos show the same person, and Google used it to create software that describes complicated images in short sentences. Technology Review recently reported that a face detection algorithm that capitalizes on the advances made on a type of machine learning known as a deep convolutional neural network is poised to revolutionize image search.”
