Deep Learning

One of the biggest steps for Artificial Intelligence. Although it got popular recently due to newly discovered algorithms and new powerful computers, deep learning has been on the field since 1980's. However, since computers were not very powerful and training was inefficiently slow it wasn't considered as a practical application in AI field.

Recent groundbreaking advancements in image and speech recognition and self driving cars are all here thanks to deep learning.

More specific examples of deep learning algorithms include Restricted Boltzmann Machine, Denoising Auto Encoder, Convolutional Neural Networks and Recurrent Neural Networks.

In some expermental classification models a Support Vector Machine with a Gaussian Kernel is used as a final layer and results are pretty good. Also there is Recursive Neural Tensor Network which is used for parsing sentences and sentamental analysis.
