Making sense of the World of AI and Deep Learning
As you know by now, I am a software engineer, architect, a coder, someone that loves technology and have been in the world of computers for over 20 years. I have seen a lot of technologies come and go, used them in many ways to help solve my customers problems. I am always researching for new and interesting emerging technologies and one that has caught my attention is the world of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Deep Learning. It truly has the potential to be a game changer for humanity, but is it for real? Today there is so much buzz and hype, it is hard to figure out what is real and what is marketing hype.
We are seeing so many companies investing millions to billions of dollars into Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning. From the amazing Amazon Echo to Tesla’s Auto Pilot showing us that cars driving themselves is around the corner to Elon Musk warning us that the Terminator movie could become a reality. These statements are so exciting and scary at the same time. How to make sense of it all ?
How in the world can a car know how to drive its self ? Every time I use Alexa I am amazed at how well it understands me.
- Does that mean these machines will eventually become self-aware ?
- Does that mean Elon Musk is right ?
- If computer’s can think will my job be replaced ?
My goal is to take you under the hood of AI and Deep Learning. To help you get a better understanding of what AI and Deep Learning is and what it is not. To help answer these questions. We will do this by solving real world problems with AI/Deep Learning.
I don’t want to give away the answer, but I think you are going to feel encouraged by the end of this. So come with me on this journey. It will be entertaining and fun!
