Deep Learning is a form of artificial intelligence, derived from machine learning. To understand what Deep Learning is, it is important to understand what machine learning is. To understand how Deep Learning works, let's take a concrete example of image recognition. Imagine that the neural network is used to recognize photos that contain at least one cat. In order to be able to identify the cats in the photos, the algorithm must be able to distinguish the different types of cats, and to recognize a cat in a precise way whatever the angle under which it is photographed. In order to achieve this, the neural network must be trained. To do this, it is necessary to compile a set of training images to practice Deep Learning. This set will gather thousands of pictures of different cats, mixed with images of objects that are not cats. These images are then converted into data and transferred to the network. Artificial neurons then assign a weight to the different elements. The final layer of neurons will then gather the different information to deduce whether or not it is a cat.

While this special issue is aimed to bring together extended version of few significant articles from The International Conference on Theoretical and Applicative Aspects of Computer Science to be held in 20 Août 1955 University, Skikda, Algeria from 15-16 December 2019. However it is also completely open to external submissions for authors who have not participated to the conference.

The missions of this special issue of IJOCI aims at making more researchers in understanding, developing new architecture, and applications of deep learning algorithms in big data problems and internet of things.
