How Deep Learning Can Transform the Transportation Sector


Well, due to its breathtaking innovation, deep learning has left various industries astonished, and the transportation industry is no exception. The industry is so large that the annual GDP amounts to 471.90 U.S.D. billion in the U.S. alone. However, this industry that forms the backbone of any economy faces some severe challenges as the scale of operation escalates. Grand View Research's latest report stated that the deep learning market would reach a value of $10.2 billion by the end of the year 2025, which highlights the growing popularity of this technology. When both the industry and the technology are growing at such a rate, why not use deep learning in transport to up the performance of this sector.

Using machine learning, Google can now predict flight delays


Users can simply search the status of their flight on the app by entering their flight number and Google will display if their flight is expected to be delayed or not along with reasons like aircraft arriving late or bad weather.

Get help with cheaper flights and potential flight delays this winter


One of the most stressful parts of traveling happens between heading to the airport and waiting to board your flight, as you start checking to see if your flight is on time. Flights already shows delays, and now we're sharing reasons for those delays and delay predictions too. Using historic flight status data, our machine learning algorithms can predict some delays even when this information isn't available from airlines yet--and delays are only flagged when we're at least 80% confident in the prediction.
