As geeky entrepreneur I dabble on many things tech and look for opportunities to see how tech can be leveraged to solve a business problem. I got really dirty learning and hacking Machine Learning problems and dabbled a bit on Deep Learning a couple of years back.
I always wanted to get back to learning more on the Deep Learning side of things when possible. "Deep Learning" is the key word.

The section below summarizes my understanding of the key differences between the two kinds of beasts.
