What Is Deep Learning?

Deep learning belongs to the extensive family of machine learning methods that enable computer systems to display the same behavior as humans during specific situations, thus promoting complete automation by eliminating human intervention in many activities.  

Deep learning allows computer models to understand and do categorization tasks directly from pictures, text, or sound. Deep learning models can exceed the performance of humans and can acquire cutting-edge accuracy in many operations. Being a booming industry with numerous possibilities, deep learning continues to power up businesses as well as client satisfaction. Many technological innovations like self-driving cars, virtual assistants (Alexa, Siri), etc. wouldn’t be here today without deep learning.  

Deep Learning Applications 

Deep learning is a machine learning technique that can be applied in many areas to create huge changes in the field of technology. Here, let’s take a look at some of the major deep-learning applications:  

Self–Driving Cars  

Deep learning is a technique that breathes life into self-driving cars. Millions of data sets are integrated into a system to develop a model, upskill a machine, and then check the outcome in a safe environment. Usually, it follows a routine cycle of testing and application of deep learning algorithms and exposure to billions of different situations in order to ensure safe driving. Self-driven cars make use of the data obtained from cameras, sensors, and geo-mapping to develop concise and complex models for navigating traffic and identifying lanes, signages, pedestrian-only paths, live components such as roadblocks, and volume of traffic. 

Fraud Detection  

In this era where everything is digitized, financial and banking institutions have no other ways but to go with the flow. Since we have begun to witness a digital transformation in the banking and financial sectors, cyber threats to the banking sector have become a concern, which in turn demands the necessity of fraud detection. Deep learning comes to help this area in identifying transaction and credit score patterns. Deep learning uses fraud detection algorithms and throws light into areas where unusual behavior happens, thus detecting fraud and preventing it. Additionally, deep learning can be used in news aggregation to strengthen efforts to deliver customized news to readers. With the internet being the source of all types of news, whether it is fake or real, it is very difficult to detect fake news as it gets copied across the channels automatically, by the bots. Deep Learning enables you to create classifiers that identify fake or biased news, delete such news from your wall, and notify you about any potential privacy breach.  

Virtual Assistants  

With the help of deep learning technology, virtual assistants and chatbots grasp more knowledge about different topics like the preferences of the user, their favorite songs, places visited, etc. Virtual assistants and chatbots are automated to comprehend the commands given by the user and analyze natural human language. Virtual assistants are also capable of translating your conversation into text, booking appointments, making notes, etc. Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and Google Assistant are some of the most common examples of deep learning applications in virtual assistants. Whenever a user interacts with the assistant, it facilitates them the chance to comprehend your voice and pronunciation, thereby offering a secondary-level human interaction experience. 


Deep learning in healthcare not only reduces costs but also helps in eliminating health risks. The application of deep learning in medicine has been proven to be valid in clinical research. Deep learning can be a helpful diagnostic companion for rehabilitation and gives alerts whenever there is a high-risk situation like respiratory failure or sepsis.  Precise and rapid diagnosis of critical diseases augmented clinicians attending patients in the absence of quality health care professionals, and the standardization of pathology results and course of treatments as well as predicting future health risks using genetics are a few of the deep learning projects moving faster in the healthcare domain. 


Deep learning is the reason why most over-the-top (OTT) platforms are able to deliver customized content to the audience according to their preferences. It can even suggest particular shows or movies to a specific user, based on their previous watch history. Even VEVO has employed these deep learning techniques to build state-of-the-art data services not merely for offering customized experiences to its users but for companies, artists, and other business groups to create statistic-based performance and fame. Content editing, transcriptions, audio-video syncing, tagging, etc. are some other major applications of deep learning in the entertainment sector. 

Visual Recognition  

Deep Learning enables sorting or categorizing images by identifying locations,  faces of people (even in a group picture), dates on which the photo is taken, occasions, etc. Searching and identifying a photo from a large dataset requires ultra-modern technology with visual recognition systems including multiple layers from standardized to advanced, to detect components.  

Natural Language Processing  

Teaching machines the entire structure of a language ranging from semantics to pronunciation is not a simple task. Even humans take years to be a thorough expert in a language they use every day. Natural language processing is the practice of training machines to learn human language and give proper responses in every situation, with the help of deep learning. Responding to questions, sorting texts, emotion analysis, and language modeling are all subdivisions of natural language processing that accelerate the use of deep learning. 

Wrap Up 

Artificial intelligence development can help businesses reap tons of benefits when Deep Learning and AI are implemented in the right way. For those who are familiar with or proficient in deep learning, the opportunities, and possibilities they have are endless. Only those who are aware of the capabilities and impact of machine learning can understand how the application of deep learning works in different industrial sectors across the globe. Deep Learning continues to explore new unsolved areas, offering a solution to human problems all around the world. It is always a safer and better option even for governments to achieve success not just in administration but also in the military and other physical forces. Deep learning is not just limited to the above-explained areas it has a border area of application.
