Applications of Deep Learning

  • Toxicity detection for different chemical compounds — Deep learning models have become so good at predicting the toxicity of different chemical compounds that they can quickly identify toxic compounds that took scientists decades to identify.
  • Water simulations — Fluid mechanics require vast amounts of data to simulate, so using AI/DL is perfect for making fluid simulations.
  • Image colorization — In the past, colorizing black and white images has been extremely difficult. It usually requires the work of experienced artists that have knowledge in color and the context of the image. However, by training models on the characteristics of many settings, they can colorize black and white images much faster.
  • Image generation — The most popular form of image generation is generating human faces. The model is trained on huge datasets of existing people, and creates its own person.
These people don’t exist. They were created by a GAN (type of deep learning) model on
  • Playing Mario Kart — Deep learning can also be used to play video games, including Mario Kart. Developer SethBling was able to use a neural network to play Mario Kart, and called it MariFlow. You can watch his video here.
