There is a popular theory that it takes 10,000 hours of training for someone to be ‘good’ at something and even then they are still more likely to make errors on occasion – hence the term human error. Whereas the success of Deep Learning comes from the speed and precision with which the network is trained, often taking much less than 10,000 hours. In fact, a Neural Network can be trained in as little as a couple of hours, to a couple of days.
