Deep learning — a form of artificial intelligence inspired by the human brain—is sweeping across every industry around the world. Thanks to this breakthrough, computer vision, voice recognition, speech synthesis, machine translation, game playing, drug discovery, and robotics are setting game-changing performance records.
ARK believes that deep learning is one of the most important software breakthroughs of our time. Now that software is enabling most industries, deep learning will have a profound impact on autos, robotics, drones, biotech, finance, agriculture, among many others. According to our research, companies founded on deep learning will unlock tens of trillions of dollars in productivity gains, and add $17 trillion in market capitalization to global equities during the next two decades, as shown below.
In a recent white paper, Deep Learning: An Artificial Intelligence Revolution, ARK explores the origins of deep learning, how it works, and how it differs from machine learning. It then examines important use cases, the leading companies in the space, and the algorithmic improvements likely to enter commercial products during the next five years.
