Deep learning is a type of machine learning that trains a computer to perform advanced functions like:
Current examples are virtual assistants such as Siri and Cortana that are powered, in part, by deep learning.
Instead of organising data to run through predefined equations, deep learning sets up basic parameters about the data and trains the computer to recognise patterns using layers of processing. Fast developments of programmes, neural networks, human-machine interfaces and computing power are now taking deep learning applications to new heights.
The benefits of deep learning for attribute recognition and image classification make it enormously valuable in the field of security. It touches on every aspect of the security industry – from facial and vehicle detection to behaviour analysis.
