What The F Is Machine Learning!?
All that Machine Learning talk might be hurting your brain...
source: quick memes
but it's not that complex.
Machine Learning is a way of getting computers to come up with their own logic...
To solve problems based on examples that we provide.
Allow me to explain Machine Learning using bears.
Here are few pictures of Black Bears and Grizzly Bears...
If I show you this...
You know it's a Black Bear from the previous pictures.
But the pictures I trained you with were all taken from the side.
Why didn't that confuse you?
Your brain was smart enough to find a pattern in the training pictures (nose, color) without being explicity told what to look for.
Machine Learning allows computers to learn in the same way.
Lets look at a real example involving the Titanic...
Given the data below about Titanic's passengers...
Can you find out if this person survived or not?
It might take you a while to make sense of the data but...
Thanks to Machine Learning, computers can digest this data in an instant to make accurate predictions.
BTW you are using Machine Learning everyday...
