There are 10 people in this world: the ones tired of this joke and the ones that don’t understand that this is a joke*. And that is kind of what this article is about.
Visual programming for deep learning
Arguably, the ability to code is an important part of literacy in today’s society, but not everyone has the benefit of having an education or understanding of coding and software development. And as we’ve seen from past technological (r)evolutions, this divide can put the non-coders (and consequently businesses) at a disadvantage in their ability to earn money and accumulate skills.
In this respect, deep learning is no different from all the other technological (r)evolutions and it is already creating a divide between those who understand what it can do and those who don’t.
If you want to use deep learning, not only do you need to know how to code, but you also need to know: 1) how to use specific data science programming libraries, 2) mathematics and statistics and 3) deep learning theory itself. Overcoming all these barriers just to get started is a tall order for most, so as of today, chances are that the divide is just going to keep growing.
This is where visual programming languages can help. They cut the overhead of knowledge and skills required by textual languages, and offer intuitive access to the graph-like nature of deep learning.
At Peltarion, our mission is to make AI accessible to as many people as possible so that we can advance humankind together. So with this in mind we designed the Peltarion Platform to be the first no-code / visual programming environment for deep learning on the market.
We want to close the skills gap so that everyone gets a chance to use deep learning to create amazing new applications, solve tricky engineering problems, make new discoveries, and drive innovation.
Here's a fantastic example of what this can mean in practice:
- Can a pen from the future change lives for children with eczema?
10% of the world’s population. That is the number of human beings who have atopic dermatitis, commonly known as atopic eczema. Simon Grant, CEO of Swedish SciBase, believes that medical technology and deep learning can change this in the near future.
