Deep learning is the most promising branch of AI. The principle of this technology is to let the computer find by itself the best way to ________. It allows to process ________ using ________ networks inspired by the neural network of the human brain.
Optimized by learning algorithms — which represent a set of ________ on the expected result —, these networks perform ________ and operate according to a system of ________: the results of each layer are used by the successive layers, hence the qualifier “deep.” The first layers extract simple characteristics that subsequent layers combine to form increasingly complex concepts.
5. True or false? From the birth of deep learning in the 1970s and 1980s, the development of AI has never stopped progressing at a rapid pace.
