Technology innovation is happening rapidly and transforming businesses. One of the fastest-growing technologies is artificial intelligence (AI). AI has many branches and each of those branches is unique and complex. A significant branch of AI is machine learning which has a developing branch known as deep learning. Deep learning is seen in everyday life without most people even knowing what it is!

What is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is a form of AI that resembles humans gaining knowledge. Deep learning drives applications to improve automation and perform analytical tasks such as humans do. If you have ever used Siri on your phone or driven a self-driving car, then you have used deep learning technology before. Deep learning is seen in everyday life without most people even knowing what it is.

Deep Learning vs. Machine Learning

Deep learning is technically a subset of machine learning, but they do have a few differences. Deep learning skips any pre-data processing that comes with machine learning. The algorithms involved in deep learning can process unstructured data, unlike machine learning. Deep learning is much more intelligent and can determine the specifics of text and images just like humans can. On the other hand, machine learning still needs humans' help to process that type of data.

How Does Deep Learning Effect Supply Chains?

It’s nearly impossible for supply chains to be managed manually. It costs time and money and allows space for human error. Some processes, including supply chain management, can be automated as technology advances. This is where deep learning comes into play. As a form of AI, deep learning automates processes and reporting for the enhancement of your business. 

Why is automation important for your supply chain? By incorporating automation technology into the supply chain, your business can track the location of their pallets and crates in real-time. Companies can even address delivery problems as they occur and plan ahead. Here are a few benefits of supply chain automation: 

  • Minimizing Loss
  • Minimizing Human Errors
  • Increasing Supply Chain Visibility
  • Improving Customer Experience
