In these series of articles, we will provide you with a brief dictionary of terms surrounding data science including AI, machine learning, and deep learning.

## Now, what is Convolutional Neural Network in Data Science?

A **Convolutional Neural Network is** a common method used with deep learning, and is typically associated with computer vision and image recognition.

**Convolutional Neural Networks** employ the mathematical concept of *convolution* to simulate the neural connectivity lattice of the visual cortex in biological systems. Convolution can be viewed as a sliding window over top a matrix representation of an image. This allows for the simulation of the overlapping tiling of the visual field.
