The rise of artificial intelligence in recent years is grounded in the success of deep learning. This creates the potential for many disruptive new businesses leveraging deep learning to solve real-world problems.
"In this paper we describe three natural properties of probability divergences that reflect requirements from machine learning: sum invariance, scale sensitivity, and unbiased sample gradients. The Wasserstein metric possesses the first two properties but, unlike the Kullback-Leibler divergence, does not possess the third."
It is tough for a software developer to decide what to study and at what depth. Learn. Learn which software technology and methods you should invest your time, energy and possibly money into for educational materials, courses, and certificates.
