Vogels noted the class of Machine learning known as deep learning increasingly addresses a range of computing tasks where programming explicit algorithms is infeasible. These are domains like fraud detection, recommendation pipelines, inventory and product review auditing. Machine leaning is also extensively used in search, autonomous drones, robotics in fulfillment centers, text and speech recognition.
