More about Machine Learning
Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning finds patterns in large volumes of data and uses those patterns to perform predictive analysis. Microsoft offers Azure Machine Learning
Machine learning models fall into two broad categories:
In supervised learning, the model is "trained" with a large volume of data and algorithms are then used to predict an outcome from future inputs. Most supervised learning models use:
- Regression algorithms to compute an outcome from a continuous set of possible outcomes, for example, your score on a test, or
- Classification algorithms to compute the probability of an outcome from a finite set of possible outcomes, for example, the probability that an e-mail is spam or a credit-card transaction is fraudulent.
In unsupervised learning, the computer isn't trained, but is presented with a set of data and challenged to find relationships in it.
