Deep Learning: Machine Perception and Its Applications

Deep learning is all the rage in advanced analytics. How does it work and how can it scale? Adam Gibson, Data Scientist and Co-founder of Skymind, explains why representational learning is an advance over traditional machine learning techniques. He also gives a demo of a working deep-belief net with a tour through DL4J's API, showing how a DBN extracts features and classifies data.


This talk was given at the SF Data Mining meetup at Trulia.
