Deep Learning In The Wild
  • Machine Learning can be unpredictable and opaque.
  • Deep Learning can be vulnerable to hacking.
  • Machine Learning requires tons of clean training data.
  • Deep Learning and GPUs break a lot of assumptions.
  • Machine Learning can look at far more data than humans.
  • The combination of humans and computers is powerful.
  • What's coming?
    • Better tools and platforms.
    • More medical applications.
    • New solutions to training data.
  • How to (successfully) ship deep learning projects:
    • Pay a lot of attention to your training data.
    • Get something working end-to-end right away, then improve one thing at a time.
    • Look for graceful ways to handle the inevitable cases where the algorithm fails.
