Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning… You hear these buzzwords almost every day but what is their actual meaning? Are these terms related and overlapping? What’s the technology behind it? And what are their applications in the geospatial industry?
Artificial intelligence has held a place in our imagination from the beginning of the XX century. Already in the 1930s and 1940s, the pioneers of computing such as Alan Turing began formulating the basic techniques like neural networks that make today’s AI possible.
Today, AI is already all around us. Google uses Machine Learning to filter out spam messages from Gmail. Facebook trained computers to identify specific human faces nearly as accurately as humans do.
Quick Summary (Extracted by Machine Learning)
- One of the most useful applications of Machine Learning for the geospatial industry is image recognition.
- Machine learning and other AI techniques have been transforming many areas in the geospatial industry.
- So you hear these buzzwords almost every day but what is the actual meaning of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning Are these terms related and overlapping?
- Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning You hear these buzzwords almost every day but what is their actual meaning?
- Although there is no clear border between the terms, that area of Machine Learning is often described as Deep Learning.
