Computers have gone much beyond mere computing numbers at a superhuman level. With Deep Learning, it seems computers might finally meet human-level performance or even surpass them in intuitive tasks like understanding spoken words, recognizing objects in an image, etc. Deep Learning has led to many technological breakthroughs. It is being used in investment modeling, fraud detection, autonomous cars, virtual assistants, super-computing, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and facial recognition systems. Further, a lot of research is going on across the world to unleash its unfathomable potential. With such developments, Deep Learning is creating massive opportunities for professionals with the right skills.
Deep Learning is penetrating the industry at an unprecedented pace. In a way, almost every sector of the industry – healthcare, software, retail, manufacturing, and others is leveraging Deep Learning applications. As the adoption of these intelligent technologies increases, so is the demand for professionals with relevant Deep Learning capabilities. This demand will only escalate higher.
Here are the most promising Deep Learning career paths that you can aspire for:
