On September 30, 2012 AlexNet, a deep Convolutional Neural Network, smashed the competition at the task of recognizing objects in the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge. Seven years later Deep Neural Networks have conquered the realms of Computer Vision, Speech Recognition, Games Playing and Natural Language Processing.  In this tour, we will take a peek at this amazing technology as well as at some of its most remarkable achievements.
