When should we use a deep neural network or just a logistic regression?

Hi guys,
When should we use a deep neural network or just a logistic regression?
Because in the course we are said in the assignment when to use this or that, but in a real-world situation how can we make our choice?
Thanks

  • It will depend on the task (Logistic regression won’t be powerful enough for things like NLP, object localization)
  • Depend on what performance are you looking at (what accuracy are you looking for)
  • Depend on what inference speeds are you looking at (regression can be lot faster)
  • Depend on hardware limitations (IOT basic module won’t be able to handle bigger DL models)
    and so on
