If you’ve been following the latest trends in technology, you’ve probably noticed that machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) are not just buzzwords anymore (see what is the difference between ML and DL). In fact, they’re responsible for some of the most impressive achievements in artificial intelligence so far, like the spotting of a distant eight-planet solar system or beating real humans at master-level chess. But are you also familiar with the concept of convolutional neural networks (CNNs or ConvNets), and how they contribute to AI development (see how does AI differ from ML)?

To say that mobile development is the future would be an understatement – it also dominates the present. Mobile devices (think smartphones) have overtaken desktop machines (such as laptops and old-school workstations) in Internet use back in 2016, and the trend has only progressed since then.
