Are you using deep neural networks in the real world, solving real world problems?
Author William Mayo at KDNuggets asked his LinkedIn connections this very question, in the wake of Kaggle's "The State of Data Science and Machine Learning" 2017 report. The Kaggle report revealed that "neural networks" are being employed by 37% of respondents. The report's algorithm breakdown considers CNNs, RNNS, and GANs separately. It's a given that self-selecting surveys are difficult to get perfect, but I was surprised by the high percentage that neural networks garnered, to be honest. It was generally assumed (up to then) that neural networks have been used by a very small percentage of machine learning/data science practitioners on real world problems (as opposed to toy problems for educational purposes).
