Deep learning is a hot research topic during 2010s. The rapid advances and data and computing-intensive characteristics of deep learning isolated ordinary people from the technology. However, as the technology advances, there are some visible signs of socialization in deep learning. The author presents the concept of democratization and industrialization of deep learning. Then, the author describes this trend as a new landscape view of AI technology. Finally, the author describes a 3-stage model of interaction between social community and technology in the era of digital transformation.
