Demystifying Machine Learning
Machine Learning: This is a powerful term! Machine learning is the hottest topic these times! Why shouldn't it be? The majority of "enticing" new development in Computer Science and Software Development generally has something connected to machine learning hidden behind a veil. Microsoft's Cortana - Machine Learning. Object and Face Recognition - Machine Learning and Computer Vision. The most advanced UX improvement programs include Machine Learning (yes! The Amazon product suggestion we received is the result of the number-crunching efforts of a Machine Learning Algorithm).
It's not only that. Machine Learning and Data Science generally are everywhere. Why? Because data is everywhere!
Therefore, it's only natural that someone with an above-average brain and can distinguish between Programming Paradigms by looking at Code is enthralled at the prospect of Machine Learning.
What do we mean by Machine Learning? And how big is Machine Learning? Let's explore Machine Learning, once and for all. Instead of presenting the technical specs, we'll use the "Understand by Example" approach.
Machine Learning: What is it really?
Machine Learning is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence that evolved from Pattern Recognition and Computational Learning theory. Arthur Lee Samuel defines Machine Learning as a field of study that provides computers with the ability to learn without needing to code explicitly.
This area is Computer Science and Artificial intelligence, which "learns" by studying data without human intervention.
However, this notion is not without flaws. Due to this belief, when the term Machine Learning is thrown around, it is usually thought of as "Artificial Intelligence" as well as "Neural networks that are able to emulate Human brains (currently it isn't possible)" or self-Driving cars and so on. However, Machine Learning is far beyond the scope. We will explore some typical and some not generally thought of aspects in Modern Computing where Machine Learning is at work.
Machine Learning: The Expectated
Let's start by highlighting some areas in which Machine Learning plays a role.
Machine Learning: The Unexpected
Let's see some fields where people who don't normally connect easily to Machine Learning:
Now, that we may have noticed, Machine Learning is everywhere. Everything from Research and Development to improving the business for Small Companies. It's all over. This makes for a great career opportunity since the field is growing and is that will not end anytime very soon.
