No, deep learning (neural network) is not an "algorithm" based approach. You can't even tell exactly how it's reaching conclusions. (Never mind "AI", I agree that what people mean by that can be a mess)
Interesting review, particularly the suggestion to use the arguably redundant forehead rest as a substitute for extended eyecups. I'd like to try that myself. Thanks, range.
Also intriguing how machine translation gets tricky expressions like "fly in the ointment" just right, but stumbles over simple words like "mirror" (technical context?). I'd like to know the literal sense of this Chinese expression "wanting to eat up and down", which has many equivalents in other languages.
You cannot, but the person who designed the multi-layered neural network and trained it, and thus knows all its parameters, can. For you the NN is a black box, for the designer it's nothing but an algorithm that computes an output for each given input. The entire process is fully deterministic and under the control of the designer and there is nothing AI about it---the "machine" does nothing but what it was instructed/told to do.
Now back to the topic of this thread.....maybe range could clarify the sense of the expression "wanting to eat up and down", I was also wondering about it.

You have completely missed the point of my comments and rushed to post your insolent answer. Once a NN is fully trained the person who designed it and has all its parameters can compute its output to any given input (for "him", or anyone else who has all NN's details, the NN is a deterministic system/algorithm performing a known operation/function). Of course the output of the NN cannot be predicted with certainty in advance, but that's a different issue---my point is that it can be computed, once you have all the parameters of the NN, so there is nothing mysterious about the function performed by the NN, which does nothing that can be interpreted as AI.
This is not about having a different opinion but about the tone of your comment: "this is so wrong", "wrong again", etc. Even in your present post you tell me what I know and what I don't etc. Expressing a different opinion is of course always welcome, when it's done by a well-mannered person, but that's not your case.
PeterPS, post #24 -- Thanks, now I do understand what you meant, though you could have explained your unexpected point better in the first place, as the term "algorithm" brought up the other point for me instead, as it did for everyone else here.
But yes, back now to Chinese idioms, or even the NL 12x42.
n.b. A caution for some:
The start of the article includes a description of an unsuccessful stalk, the deer bounds safely away
If you wish, ignore the first 5 paragraphs, and go down to the comparative photo of the NL and the EL
