It treats the actual context, the traditional decision support tools and fucntionalities and the present deep learning models possible to use in business. It actually raises the main points of interest of today’s business world always dynamic, always online, dealing with lots of technologies and lots of data. Artificial neural networks are designed such that they can identify the underlying patterns in data and learn from them. They can be used for various tasks such as classification, regression, segmentation, and so on. This paper treats the problems that decision-makers addresses with deep learning models.

Keywords: deep learning, decision support systems, machine learning, business, data mining.
