# Do you know that convolution operation was implemented in deep learning systems via matrix multiplication?

Here you can find a detailed description of how it is done by chunking the data

Theano library, by the way, provides many possibilities for implementation of convolution, among which CPUCorrMM (this isn’t the main way however)

Today convolutions typically have small filters and implemented with Winograd optimization
