Deep LearningDeep Learning

This page is about the skill Deep Learning, which is one of more than 40 technical skills you can assess on Alooba. The Deep Learning skill is about the subcategory of Neural Networks that use many hidden layers of neurons. It will be important to be able to distinguish between Neural Networks and Deep Learning and explain why adding hidden layers of neurons changes the performance of a Neural Network structure. It will also be expected to talk about the advances in that field and applications (like increased performance in image recognition for example), give examples of successful Deep Learning structures and applications. Showing an understanding of frameworks that facilitate the use of Deep Learning is also required.

Why should we test someone’s Deep Learning skills?

A critical part of running an ethical hiring process that’s fair and meritocratic is having objective measures of someone’s skills. Why does ethical hiring matter? Simple - it helps you hire the best person for the job.

Robert Half reported that the cost of a bad hire is on average 15-21% of the employee’s salary.

What was the most common reason for mis-hires? A lack of the right technical skills. This a true hiring own-goal, as it’s so easily preventable through a valid, thorough skills assessment.

So, if your role requires a candidate to know Deep Learning well, you can validate that with Alooba Assess.
