This paper provides an introduction to deep learning, its applications and how SAS supports the creation of deep learning models. It is geared toward a data scientist and includes a step-by-step overview of how to build a deep learning model using deep learning methods developed by SAS. You’ll then be ready to experiment with these methods in SAS

Deep learning is a type of machine learning that trains a computer to perform humanlike tasks, such as recognizing speech, identifying images or making predictions. Instead of organizing data to run through predefined equations, deep learning sets up basic parameters about the data and trains the computer to learn on its own by recognizing patterns using many layers of processing. Deep learning is used strategically in many industries.
