Deep learning is a subset of machine learning which is itself a subset of artificial intelligence and statistics. Artificial intelligence research began shortly after World War II [35]. Early work was based on the knowledge of the structure of the brain, propositional logic, and Turing’s theory of computation. Warren McCulloch and Walter Pitts created a mathematical formulation for neural networks based on threshold logic. ...
