One of the vital entity of any communication systems is Channel coding, which leads to the design of high performance codes for future wireless systems having low complexity encoder and decoder design. These systems will have a requirement of operating in highly reliable conditions, maximum throughput, and low and high code rates and to work with short and long information messages. Polar codes are one of the promising error correcting channel codes that can be used in these situations to obtain maximum throughput and coding gain in a communication systems because of their capacity approaching performance and finds interests in Satellite communication and 4G/5G services. These codes uses the concept of channel polarization to be constructed. The work proposed in this paper focusses on the Bit Error Rate evaluation and analysis of the Polar codes using traditional approach and Deep learning approach. The feedforward deep learning networks using different activation functions were used for the Deep learning approach. The Successive Cancellation algorithm and its variant using List decoding were used as traditional decoding methodology. The results obtained using Deep learning approach were satisfactory and was matching as per the traditional decoding.
