“Deep Learning has transformed many important tasks, including speech and image recognition. Deep Learning systems scale well by absorbing huge amounts of data to create accurate models. The computational resources afforded by GPUs have been instrumental to this scaling. However, as Deep Learning has become more mainstream, it has generated some hype, and has been linked to everything from world peace to evil killer robots. In this talk, Dr. Ng will help separate hype from reality, and discuss potential ways that Deep Learning technologies can benefit society in the short and long term.”
