Deep learning does not always mean adopting a radically new approach and throwing away existing solutions. Very often, existing solutions have been developed over time with significant budget and efforts and have a significant amount of accumulated assets, such as software, institutional knowledge, business processes, talent pools, and community. Thus, organizations should judiciously evaluate their strategy in adopting deep learning.
Verdi March demystifies deep learning and shares his experience on how to gradually transition to deep learning. Using a specific example in computer vision, Verdi touches upon key differences in engineering traditional software versus deep learning-based software.
