A variety of screening approaches have been proposed to diagnose epileptic seizures, using Electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) modalities. Artificial intelligence encompasses a variety of areas, and one of its branches is deep learning. Before the rise of deep learning, conventional machine learning algorithms involving feature extraction were performed. This limited their performance to the ability of those handcrafting the features. However, in deep learning, the extraction of features and classification is entirely automated. The advent of these techniques in many areas of medicine such as diagnosis of epileptic seizures, has made significant advances. In this study, a comprehensive overview of the types of deep learning methods exploited to diagnose epileptic seizures from various modalities has been studied. Additionally, hardware implementation and cloud-based works are discussed as they are most suited for applied medicine.
