Deep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts. Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience, there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs. The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones;

Towards Bridging The Gap Between Deep Learning And Biology

We explore the following crucial question: How could brains potentially perform the kind of powerful credit assignment that allows hidden layers of a very deep network to be trained and that has been so successful with deep learning recently? 27 September 2016, Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Berkeley University Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, head of the Montreal Institute for Learning
