With standing room only for deep learning at this year’s UKIVA Machine Vision Conference, our centre pages are devoted to this popular topic. The evolution of deep learning Deep learning is a subset of machine learning, which in turn is part of the overall umbrella of artificial intelligence (AI). AI was first formulated as far back as 1956. In the 1980s, machine learning emerged in the form of algorithms that can learn patterns in training data sets using some form of statistical analysis, then look for those same patterns in ‘unknown’ data. Deep learning, however, utilises artificial neural networks to imitate the way the human brain works for recognition and decision making. Deep learning really began to make an impact around 2012 thanks to a number of key breakthroughs. These included the development of deep neural networks with many hidden layers, the possibility of massive parallel processing at affordable costs through GPUs, large data storage capabilities and the availability of huge data sets for training. Now deep learning capabilities for machine vision are available through commercial image processing software. Extraordinarily powerful, but not a magic bullet in solving all imaging problems.
