There are four major ways to train deep learning networks: supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised, and reinforcement learning. We’ll explain the intuitions behind each of the these methods. Along the way, we’ll share terms you’ll read in the literature in parentheses and point to more resources for the mathematically inclined. By the way, these categories span both traditional machine learning algorithms and the newer, fancier deep learning algorithms.
