Neural networks (NN) are the backbone of many of today's machine learning (ML) models, loosely mimicking the neurons of the human brain to recognize patterns from input data. As a result, numerous types of neural network topologies have been designed over the years, built using different types of neural network layers.
If you’ve been around software development for a while, you’ve undoubtedly come across numerous terms appended with the word “Ops”, such as “DevOps”, “TestOps”, or “DataOps”. Of these, “DevOps” (short for “development and information-technology operations”) is probably the most well-known. It refers to a set of software development practices that promote automation and cross collaboration between teams of different disciplines, to reduce software delivery times while achieving a desired level of quality.
Digital systems are only useful if they can be trusted to do their job. With traditional deterministic systems, we could derive a degree of certainty that a system was working correctly through processes such as unit tests, end-user testing, code reviews, and design documentation.
