Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are biologically inspired feed forward artificial neural networks. The artificial neurons in CNNs are connected in a manner similar to the neurons in the mammalian visual system. CNNs are currently used for image recognition, semantic segmentation, natural language processing, playing video games and many other applications. A CNN can consist of millions of neurons that require billions of computations to produce a single output.
