What is Machine Learning?

Machine learning is defined as teaching a machine through experience by giving them sample data. The machine will then be able to perform prediction on data from what it understands. This is believed to be a subset of artificial intelligence. In recent years, Artificial intelligence and more specifically machine learning emerged as a proof of the fourth industrial revolution. Google, Facebook’s face tagging, Apple’s Siri assistant and Amazon product recommendation are some of the applications based on machine learning.

Simply, machine learning is an area of computer technology, which has the ability to self-study on input without specific programming.

Machine Learning Work Flow – Is all about data and its exploration.

  • Combine data from multiple sets and derive conclusion
  • Look for future trends from collected data
  • Make decision based on the data outcome
