Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning. The two thus share many similarities. Unlike traditional machine learning models that rely on manually engineered features, deep learning models learn these features automatically through the use of multiple layers of nonlinear processing units.
One of the key strengths of deep learning is its ability to learn and represent complex relationships in data. This makes it particularly effective in areas where traditional machine learning methods struggle, such as image and speech recognition. However, one of the weaknesses of deep learning is its dependence on large amounts of high-quality data. Even more so than traditional machine learning. Deep learning models require massive datasets to train effectively, and the quality of the data can significantly impact the performance of the models. Deep learning can thus be used to combat child sexual abuse (CSA) in many of the same ways that machine learning can. That is to say, via image analysis, video analysis, language processing, and beyond.
One of the primary advantages of deep learning over traditional machine learning is its ability to handle large, complex datasets with high dimensionality. This is because deep learning models can learn and represent more intricate relationships between the features in the data, making them better suited for tasks such as image and speech recognition. However, deep learning models can also be more computationally expensive and require more data to train effectively.
