Analyst(s): Alexander Linden


Deep learning is one of the biggest artificial intelligence technology wonders of the past decade. Most progress is happening around text, audio and image processing. For data and analytics leaders, it will enable a quantum leap in those areas of their operations that are especially content-rich.

Impacts and Recommendations

  • Deep learning will enable a quantum leap in content processing that data and analytics leaders must prepare for: from image and speech recognition, and machine translation, to content creation and much more
  • Deep learning has superior capabilities to fuse/integrate data from various event streams; data and analytics leaders should be aware that it will, therefore, also enhance their corporate data science projects, especially those where multiple data types are involved
  • Initially, this corporate impact will materialize only for the most advanced organizations with fitting tasks; taking two to three years longer for the rest, once their nascent deep learning infrastructure has the chance to mature further
