Deep learning has powerful capabilities in deep feature extraction and expression, and has been successfully applied in equipment fault diagnosis, overcoming the shortcomings of traditional diagnostic methods that rely on expert experience. It can save costs while improving diagnostic accuracy. This article briefly introduces three commonly used neural networks: Deep Belief Networks (DBN), Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), and Long Short-Term Memory Networks (LSTM), and points out the problems in rolling bearing diagnosis and analyzes future development directions.
