What is Machine Learning?

Machine Learning is an application of Artificial Intelligence that allows machines and computers to learn automatically to predict outcomes from examples and experiences, without there being any need for explicit programming. As the name suggests, it gives machines and computers the ability to learn, making them similar to humans.

The concept of machine learning is quite simple. Instead of writing code, data is fed to a generic algorithm. The generic algorithm/machine will build a logic which will be based on the data provided. The provided data is termed as ‘training data’ as they are used to make decisions or predictions without any program to perform the task.

Practical Definition from Credible Sources:

1) Stanford defines Machine Learning as:

“Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed.”

2) Nvidia defines Machine Learning as:

“Machine Learning at its most basic is the practice of using algorithms to parse data, learn from it, and then make a determination or prediction about something in the world.”

3) McKinsey & Co. defines Machine Learning as:

“Machine learning is based on algorithms that can learn from data without relying on rules-based programming.”

4) The University of Washington defines Machine Learning as:

“Machine learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing from examples.”

5) Carnegie Mellon University defines Machine Learning as:

“The field of Machine Learning seeks to answer the question “How can we build computer systems that automatically improve with experience, and what are the fundamental laws that govern all learning processes?”

Origin of Machine Learning through the years

Today, algorithms of machine learning enable computers and machines to interact with humans, write and publish sport match reports, autonomously drive cars, and find terrorist suspects as well. Let’s peek through the origins of machine learning and its recent milestones.

1950:
Alan Turing created a ‘Turing Test’ in order to determine if a computer has real intelligence. A computer should fool a human into believing that it is also a human to pass the test.

1952:
The first computer learning program was written by Arthur Samuel. The program was a game of checkers. The more that the IBM computer played the game, the more it improved at the game, as it studied the winning strategies and incorporated those moves into programs.

1957:
The first neural network for computers was designed by Frank Rosenblatt. It stimulates the thought process of the human brain.

1967:
The ‘nearest neighbour’ was written. It allowed computers to use basic pattern recognition.

1981:
Explanation-Based Learning was introduced, where a computer analyses the training data and creates a general rule which it can follow by discarding the unimportant data.

1990:
The approach towards the work on machine learning changes from a knowledge-driven approach to machine-driven approach. Programs were now created for computers to analyze a large amount of data and obtain conclusions from the results.

1997:
IBM’s Deep Blue beat the world champion in a game of chess.

2006:
Geoffrey Hinton coined the term ‘deep learning’ that explained new algorithms that let the computer distinguish objects and texts in videos and images.

2010:
The Microsoft Kinect was released, which tracked 20 human features at a rate of 30 times per second. This allowed people to interact with computers via gestures and movements.

2011:
IBM’s Watson beat its human competitors at Jeopardy.

2011:
Google Brain was developed. It discovered and categorized objects similar to the way a cat does.

2012:
Google’s X Labs developed an algorithm that browsed YouTube videos and identified those videos that contained cats.

2014:
Facebook introduced DeepFace. It is an algorithm that recognizes and verifies individuals on photos.

2015:
Microsoft launched the Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit, which distributed machine learning problems across multiple computers.

2016:
An artificial intelligence algorithm by Google, AlphaGo, beat a professional player at a Chinese board game Go.

How does Machine Learning work?

The algorithm of machine learning is trained using a training data set so that a model can be created. With the introduction of any new input data to the ML algorithm, a prediction is made based on the model.

The accuracy of the prediction is checked and if the accuracy is acceptable, the ML algorithm is deployed. For cases where accuracy is not acceptable, the Machine Learning algorithm is trained again with supplementary training data set.

There are various other factors and steps involved as well. This is just an example of the process.

Advantages of Machine Learning

  1. It is used in multifold applications such as financial and banking sectors, healthcare, publishing, retail, social media, etc.
  2. Machine learning can handle multi-variety and multi-dimensional data in an uncertain or dynamic environment.
