Why AI and deep learning are the perfect tools to help us understand the past

The world of academia is generally not known for being on the cutting edge of technology. However, as technology rapidly advances, historians and researchers can utilize both artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning to make their jobs easier. Artificial intelligence is the ability for a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. Deep learning, a subset of machine learning, is the intermediary between machine learning and neural networks. Deep learning provides a fast and relatively easy way to process massive amounts of data, much of which would be tedious and time consuming for a human to process; because of this, pattern recognition is one of deep learning's greatest strengths.
