A report from Technavio finds that the global Deep Learning market has the potential to grow by $7.2 billion from 2020 to 2024 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 45 percent. An excerpt from the report snapshot outlines key drivers and trends anticipated:
Deep learning is popularly used in machine learning, which involves the use of artificial neural networks with several degrees of layers. Moreover, each of these layers has a certain degree of functionality and is mainly used for representing vast amounts of data to ease the process of decision making. Furthermore, the application of deep learning-powered applications widens as massive volumes of digital data are produced at an unprecedented rate across industries. Additionally, the increase in funding in the field of deep learning has encouraged several start-ups to apply this technology across a wide range of industry verticals. For instance, fraud detection, visual recognition, logistics, insurance, and agriculture are some of the application areas of deep learning.
