Need for Deep Learning/AI research

— Deep learning is used in reference to Neural Networks

— The growth in AI publications has surpassed the growth in general CS publications in recent years.

— AI is becoming more researched than CS generally.

Examples of Machine Learning Applications

— Spam filters

— Recommendation Systems

— Image Recognition

— Self Driving Cars

— Siri, Alex, Google (other Conversational Agents)

— Language Modeling

— Machine Translation (Google Translate)

— Sentiment Analysis

What factors allowed AI to boom?

1. Data availability/Digitalization of information

2. Increased Computation Power

3. Better Performance Algorithms

Linear Regression:

— Train f(x) = ax + b to get a specific ‘a’ and ‘b’

Logistic Regression:

— Can be much more complex with something such as f(x) = ax² + bx + c

moving up to much larger polynomial functions

— Linear Regression is a subset of Logistic Regression

Possible new projects I’m interested in:

— Image classification techniques

— Music genre classification
