About the Project

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning in artificial intelligence (AI) that is capable of learning from data.

Deep learning is receiving a lot of attention due to its ability to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in terms of accuracy and speed, to the point where deep learning algorithms can outperform humans at decision making, and at tasks such as classifying images, and text.

Deep Learning is been utilised for various natural language processing (NLP) applications. NLP concerns the development of computational algorithms to automatically analyse and represent human language. However, the task of utilising deep learning methods for analysing source-code (e.g. programs written in the Java, and C# programming languages) has not been exploited as much.

This project involves the development of deep learning models for analysing, classifying and clustering files in large source-code for indexing and similarity detection tasks.
