Deep Learning has been made very fashionable over the last few years and people have tended to
use the term synonymously with Articial Intelligence ever since “tech giants” like Google and
Microsoft have embraced it.
The technology is very powerful for categorizing objects within an image. One can provide it with
a large dataset of any object eg 10,000 images of dogs, and the system can be trained to detect the
next dog that comes along.
Deep Learning requires large training data sets and is very computing heavy. It is dicult for the
technology to be applied to practical use-cases. Wildfaces recently completed a project for the
Hong Kong Prisons where they wanted to detect suicide attempts. There was no opportunity to
collect a large dataset of relevant cases. For that requirement, Wildfaces applied its unique ReasoningAI technology that could better mimic human intelligence, ensuring a quick and successful
