Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science focusing on designing methods and frameworks that can simulate humans’ way of thinking. Research area of AI includes robotics, image recognition, language recognition, computer vision, etc. Deep learning method is a class of machine learning algorithms that use a cascade of multiple layers of nonlinear processing units for feature extraction and transformation, which grant computers the ability to learn from and make predictions on data.
