The amazing thing about these algorithms is that they can perform tasks better than us. They can even do things we don't know how to do ourselves. For instance , in the University of Toronto , a guy ( Geoffrey Histon) led a team in a competition, and they discovered drugs automatically, without almost any background in chemistry or biology.
This is inspired by how the human brain works . The more data and computation time, the better it gets .There are non theoretical limits .
You can even talk in English, and in real time , the machine will tell the same thing in Chinese , with the same voice ; and all of this was done by deep learning.
The idea behind Deep Learning is not to replaced humans by a computer, but to make them work together.
We're going to replace something that used to take a team of five or six people about seven years and replacing it with something that takes 15 minutes for one person acting alone.
This process is very fast and it takes four or five iterations. Humans can check if the deep learning algorithm has made mistakes and if we find one, we can let the computer know about it
