How Does Machine Learning Work?


Machine Learning (ML) is everywhere. It is the backbone of both Netflix’s algorithm for suggestions and Google Search. Other companies like Apple and Facebook Messenger bots can use ML as well to make their business more profitable by making it easier on you.

The researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that no occupation will be untouched by ML but may not be desirable by all. The way to unleash its potential success is through reclassifying jobs into distinct tasks which can either be done automatically or manually. Some require humans while others do not.

What Is Machine Learning?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the science behind robots, computers, and other advanced technologies. ML provides a way to automate tasks by using algorithms that can be programmed with human-like abilities, so they learn on their own through experience.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the future of technology. This process creates computer models that exhibit intelligent behaviors like humans, according to Boris Katz, a principal research scientist, and head at CSAIL’s InfoLab Group. AI can recognize visual scenes, or recognize natural language text on their own, and are able to perform actions physically in our world.

ML is a type of AI that helps computers learn without being programmed. AI pioneer, Arthur Samuel, coined the term in 1958 to compare what happens when you program one instance (or controller) with another over time. But this process can be sped up by using algorithms instead.

In the years since its inception, many other innovations have been created from it including voice recognition tools such as Apple’s Siri or Amazon Echo. These devices use spoken words recorded into their databases for answers based on prior customer interactions.

“Machine learning is changing, or will change, every industry, and leaders need to understand the basic principles, the potential, and the limitations,” said MIT computer science professor Aleksander Madry, director of the MIT Center for Deployable Machine Learning.

How Machine Learning Works

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic these days, and it seems like every company wants to incorporate some form of the technology. Machine Learning (ML) has become so popular that many people mistake them for one another without realizing there are differences between them. Both machine-based systems learn how something works over time as more data is collected.

Data Must Be Supplied First

A machine learning program starts with data — numbers, photos, sales transactions, or text. This can be anything from bank transactions to pictures of people and even bakery items. The more information the better because it helps train a model that will tell us how things work in context.

A Learning Model Is Chosen

In this process, programmers choose an ML model and let the computer train itself. They supply it with data that helps in finding patterns or making predictions of new outcomes from existing ones by using statistical analysis techniques. Humans can also tweak parameters so that they can help the ML output become more accurate over time.
