AI: What’s the difference between machine learning and deep learning?

Why you should learn machine and deep learning

What are machine learning and deep learning? And why do they matter? This time, I break down the fundamental principles behind these transformative technologies and emphasise their reliance on data, algorithms, and neural networks. Machine learning is like teaching a computer to be a detective, while deep understanding is like giving the computer a brain. They have pivotal roles in modern applications, such as recommendation systems, image recognition and natural language processing, each hinging on the power of AI to understand, learn and adapt.

You should listen to understand how they impact our world and how you can create the next step for your growth!

In this episode, we’ll understand:
  • Machine learning involves teaching computers to learn from data and make decisions based on it.

  • Deep learning is a subset of machine learning that utilises neural networks to mimic human brain functions.

  • Machine learning is comparable to teaching a toddler to recognise objects, while deep understanding involves teaching layers of information.

  • Both machine learning and deep learning require ample data and processing power for optimal functioning.

  • Data serves as the fuel for AI systems, enabling them to learn and make informed decisions.

  • Algorithms are like instruction manuals, guiding AI systems in processing and learning from data.

  • Inspired by the human brain, neural networks power deep learning systems’ autonomous learning capabilities.

  • Recommendation systems apply machine learning to suggest products based on user behaviour.

  • Powered by deep learning, image recognition enables computers to identify objects and even diagnose diseases.

  • Natural language processing involves teaching computers to understand and communicate in human languages, paving the way for interactive AI solutions.
