Let's start with a question: What global company is using neural networks to make one of its most famous products sound more human when it translates text (like your text messages) into speech?
That's right, if you guessed it! Amazon's Alexa. A great example of the use of neural networks!
So what are they really?
The basic idea behind a neural network is to simulate (copy in a simplified but reasonably faithful way) lots of densely interconnected brain cells inside a computer so you can get it to learn things, recognize patterns, and make decisions in a humanlike way.
Neural networks were first proposed in 1944 by Warren McCullough and Walter Pitts, two University of Chicago researchers who moved to MIT in 1952 as founding members of what’s sometimes called the first cognitive science department.
