Layman Explanation of Artificial Neural Networks

For a more technical explanation on neural networks, refer to one of my older posts.

With the explosion of AI across all industries, Deep Learning has been responsible for many of the major breakthroughs.  But for people in non-tech, what exactly is Deep Learning?

Deep Learning is a series of machine learning models based on artificial neural networks.

Okay, we just described what is Deep Learning.  However, the definition doesn't define what exactly is an artificial neural network (ANN).

What are Neural Networks?

I admit, I'm late to the whole Neural Network party.  With all of the major news covering AI that use neural network as part of their implementation, you'd have to be living under a rock to not know about them.  While it's true that they can provide more flexible models compared to the other machine learning algorithms, they can be challenging to work with.
