A completely non-technical explanation of AI and deep learning – Parand

You hire 50 more people, have them give their guesses to the 10 people that report to you. You’re now very removed from looking at the spreadsheets – instead you rely on the patterns found by the first layer of the people, who give their opinions to the second layer of the people, who then inform you. Everybody passes the slaps and rewards down the line based on how much each earlier person’s guess contributed to their guess. It takes even longer, but eventually the system starts working. You’re much more accurate in identifying when it’s a cat.
