Demystifying Machine Learning……

“Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.”

Searching “Machine Learning” on Google will give you images of an artificial brain with neon code commands running through its veins.
But even though these images are really cool, they don’t tell us anything about what Machine Learning is….

To put it simply- Machine Learning is when a computer takes in data and makes predictions. Not prediction’s like-Who’s gonna win the lottery or, who am I gonna marry?

Nor is it something which empowers a computer to take over the Earth.

Its like you feed a computer with data and it learns it all, you don’t have to code it again and again. If you’re still confused, Machine Learning is a piece of code that learns from past experiences.

A Professor said this-“A computer program is said to learn from experience ‘E’ with respect to some class of tasks ‘T’ and performance measure ‘P’, if it’s performance at tasks in ‘T’, as measured by ‘P’, improves with experience ‘E’. In a nutshell.

Now I know what must have come to your mind-“Isn’t that known as Artificial intelligence?”

Machine Learning vs Artificial Intelligence

People use Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence interchangeably, but these two terms are different.

Machine Learning vs AI
Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence
Machine Learning is a current application of AI in which machines take learn with data.

Machine Learning is a narrow term and is a part of Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence is a piece of code that starts to behave in a human-like manner.

Artificial Intelligence is a broad term.

Top Programming Language for Machine Learning:

If you want to do something in the field, here are the top programming languages to know-

  1. Python is the language to know for machine learning
  2. Java
  3. c++
  4. c
  5. JavaScript
  6. Scala
  7. Julia

I hope this post had helped get a gist of what this massive term means…… Leave your thoughts in the comments section below
