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.

Learn Machine Learning

Learn Machine Learning in Kolkata, India

The primary objective of Machine Learning is to enable computer systems to perform tasks like locating data, analyzing them and learning from the data without any form of external help or intervention. From the moment observations of data become available in the form of direct experiences or examples, the process of Machine Learning starts. The system looks at the provided data, tries to find patterns in them and then extrapolates these observed patterns in order to make better business decisions. It takes into account all the information and datasets available to the program or system to make its decision.

There are several methods of Machine Learning. Broadly they can be categorized in to the following two categories-

  • Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms: These algorithms depend on old data already existing in the system to interpret the new data provided to them. This is done with the use of labeled examples to predict the events of the future.
    • A known dataset is provided to the system from which it trains and learns.
    • A learning algorithm derived from the training is produced in the form of inferred function which is then used to make predictions from new data.
    • These inferred functions then provide us with results from new data after considerable training and learning.
  • Unsupervised Machine Learning Algorithm: These algorithms are used when the data required for learning by the system is either not labeled or have not been classified. 
    • Unsupervised learning systems have the ability to infer functions from unlabeled data to find hidden patterns. 
    • While such systems are unable to find the correct results, it can read available data and draw inferences from given datasets. This helps in finding hidden patterns and rules from the unlabeled data.

According to Angellist, there are over 250+ startups in Kolkata, such as TaxMantra, Sweethandi, Santa Delivers, Zeroinfy, etc. It is also home to several leading companies, such as Oracle, Sforce, Wipro, TCS, Cognizant, etc. In 2018, Infosys started its software development centre in Kolkata investing around Rs 100 crore in the first phase. Machine learning is helping all these companies in finding patterns and automate value extraction in many areas. 

It simply works

Machines and computers have the ability to work faster than the human brain by processing a huge number of data and working out a solution faster than the human brain can. For instance, if there are millions of options, possibilities and opinions, a machine can analyze all the possibilities, systematically working out and evaluating all possibilities and finding the best outcome or conclusion. 

It is used in a wide range of applications today

Machine Learning is the most practical solution to all our worldly problems and needs. It enables businesses to be more efficient by saving time, money and efforts. We can get more amount of work done with Machine Learning, making it a reliable, effective and appropriate system. Industries in Kolkata like health care, nursing, transport, governments and finance benefit from the developments in Machine Learning, making it an indispensable part of our society as of today.

Due to the social media boom, millions of data is being generated every day. At present, all companies- from startups to MNCs in Kolkata- are incorporating Machine Learning to make key decisions for their organizations. With data, big and small, being the basis of technological and industrial advancements, Machine Learning will remain an important sector for the next few decades; constantly reshaping itself to the market needs. 

Listed below are the benefits of getting certified in Machine Learning-

According to Glassdoor, the average salary of a Machine Learning experts in India is somewhere between 60-90K per month. The average salary for a Machine Learning Engineer is Rs 48,310 per month in Kolkata, West Bengal. 
  • Demand curve for Machine Learning experts is steadily going up and will keep going up- It is no surprise that the Machine learning jobs are on the increase. The gap between the demand and availability of professionals is on the increase in most leading companies. AI is the future and offers enough job security that IT professionals should think of getting certified in Machine Learning soon.
  • Industries from all sectors are slowly incorporating Machine Learning in their businesses- By 2020 the number of data-related jobs is projected to grow by nearly 364,000 listings to approximately 2,720,000. Availability of tons of free data at the disposal of companies makes it imperative to be used for business purposes. Implementing Machine Learning to work efficiently and competently will put companies ahead of their competitors. 

Machine Learning is constantly evolving and developing itself everyday due to the immense amount of possibilities it offers. While one can always opt for certified courses or diplomas, self-learning ML can also be equally effective if one has the motivation to keep working forward. The few things to keep in mind are-

  • Machine Learning is a practical medium that requires hands-on experience rather than theoretical knowledge. Your ability will depend on your successful use and manipulation of available data for the development of a company.
  • The best way to increase your chances of getting employed is by taking up as many projects during your self learning days as you can.

You can follow these steps to learn machine learning:

  1. Preparations- The best way to make the best use of your time is to read through all the relevant documents and research papers on the subject. Make a schedule of the important aspects that needs to be learnt first and what can be left to be learned later.
  2. Prerequisite- Decide on the programming language that you would like to learn and brush up on your statistical and mathematical skills since ML deals with statistical data.
  3. Learning- Proceed with reading up on ML according to the schedule you created in Step 1 and make sure not to lag behind. Constantly refer to books and online materials from sites like Coursera, KnowledgeHut or edX to clear any doubts that you might have.

    Below are the steps to execute an ML project with Python:

    1. Gather Data: The basic and the most important step is the gathering of data that is appropriate for a particular project. The quality and quantity of data will determine the performance of your ML model.
    2. Cleaning and preparing data: The data that is gathered is in raw form; which means that this data needs to be processed or cleaned by correcting the missing data and preparing it by specific feature engineering. Finally, divide it into 2 parts: training data and testing data.
    3. Visualize the data: Usually this is the final step, it is done to present the prepared data and find the correlations between the variables. 
    4. Choosing the correct model: The kind of ML model that will be ideal for harvesting the given data is important as it helps determine the performance of the algorithm.
    5. Training and testing: After having decided on the model through which the processed data will be passed, the previous division of data is ready to be used. The training data set is passed through the model to train it with the new set of data, then the accuracy of the model is checked by passing the test data.
    6. Adjust parameters: After determining the accuracy of the model, the parameters are fine tuned. One of the examples of that is changing the number of neurons in the neural networks.

    Algorithms are an integral part of Machine Learning. Here’s how you can effectively learn them:

    1. Make a list of all ML algorithms: Every algorithm is useful and unique in its own way. Thus, it is important to list the algorithms you want to learn in the beginning of your Machine Learning journey. Writing down the general category under which an algorithm falls provides you with an idea of the different classes and types of algorithms available and prepares you for what lies ahead.
    2. Implement the Machine Learning algorithms you listed: Algorithms do not exist in isolation from the data. While having an in-depth idea of the theory behind any algorithm is expected, unless you can successfully implement the algorithms in processing data, your skill set remains only half full. Practicing the algorithms with different types of data provides you with the confidence to work in any given situation. Start building up an intuition for the various Machine Learning algorithms such as Support Vector Machines, decision trees etc. 
    3. Describe the Machine Learning algorithms: Once you are well accustomed to the various algorithms, the next step is to explore what you have already learnt. Being able to describe and analyze every algorithm will increase your knowledge of algorithms. Continue adding more information to these descriptions as you go.
    4. Use the Machine Learning algorithms: By implementing the algorithm yourself, you will be able to understand the micro decisions involved in the implementation of Machine Learning concepts. The implementation of algorithms will help you get a feeling about the workings of an algorithm as well as understand the mathematical extensions and descriptions of the algorithm. 
    5. Experiment on Machine Learning algorithms: Once you have a strong grasp of the concepts of Machine Learning algorithms, it is time to experiment with them. Understanding the different parameters that are used during the working on an algorithm prepares you to customize the algorithms to suit your needs in the future.

    • The mode or the most frequent class in a classification problem
    • The means of the outcomes, in a regression problem

    The benefits of KNN is the ease of use and simplicity. Though it uses a lot of memory to store the large dataset, it calculates only when prediction is needed. 

    Your intention and future goals with Machine Learning determines the necessity of learning algorithms-

    • If you simply want to use the existing Machine Learning algorithms without having any knowledge of classic algorithms you can do so. There are various online courses on Machine Learning that do not teach algorithms with Machine Learning tools.
    • But if you want to bring innovations in the field of Machine Learning then the basic knowledge and workings of algorithms will be a prerequisite for you. Since being an innovator it is your responsibility to find new and improved Machine Learning analyzing tools, you will need to have the knowledge of new algorithms as well as devise new algorithms of our own. This requires you to have a good grasp of the different aspects of algorithms and using that knowledge to devise your own.

    Machine Learning algorithms are basically of three types:

    • Supervised Learning: Linear Regression, Logistic Regression, Classification and Regression Trees (CART), Naïve Bayes, K-Nearest Neighbours
    • Unsupervised Learning: Apriori, K-Means, Principal Component Analysis (PCA)
    • Ensemble Learning: Bagging, Boosting

    The simplest algorithm in Machine Learning enables one to solve the simplest ML problems. According to this criteria the algorithm has to be:

    • Easy to comprehend.
    • Easy to use and recognizing the underlying patterns.
    • Simple algorithms take less time and resources to train and test data as compared to high-level algorithm.

    K-nearest neighbor algorithm is the most simplest and widely used ML algorithms for solving basic but important real life problems. The reason for that is-

    • It is a classification algorithm though it can be used for regression as well.
    • It classifies based on the similarity measure and is non-parametric.
    • Data set used for the training phase is labeled data (supervised learning) and the aim of the algorithm becomes predicting a class for an object based on its k nearest surroundings where k defines the number of neighbors.
    • Some practical and real-life examples where KNN is used are:
      • When searching in documents containing similar topics.
      • Used to detect patterns in credit card usage.
      • Vehicular number plate recognition.

    Machine Learning is the most popular and heavily used system. Thus it has a lot of tools, algorithms and models to choose from. Having an understanding of selecting the right algorithm for your problem will determine the final quality of your project.

    • Understanding your data: Even before deciding on the appropriate algorithm, one needs to understand the data in front of him/her. Understanding the data well is important to decide which algorithm will be ideal. 
    • Get the intuition about your task: There are instances when the ultimate aim of a task is lost in the process and that is why ML is so important to solve the problem. After realizing the need of a process, you can decide the kind of learning required to complete the task at hand. There are 4 types of learning in general.
      • Supervised learning
      • Unsupervised learning
      • Semi-supervised learning
      • Reinforcement learning
    • Understand your constraints: A lot of times we overestimate ourselves and do not apply constraints to our planning and find the best tools and algorithms out there. This is not the right approach. Most of the best models and algorithms are for high end machines which require high level storage. Understanding hardware and software constraints thus become important. 

    The more you practice and implement Machine Learning algorithms the more efficient and faster will your solutions become. The process of implementation of ML algorithms are as follows:

    1. Selecting a programming language: Decide on the type of programming language you will use for your data. The programming language will depend on your libraries and APIs that you are going to use for your implementation.
    2. Selecting algorithm to be used for implementation: Next step is to find the ideal algorithm that you are going to implement. Having a clear idea of all the steps and specifics will determine how smoothly your implementation will go. 
    3. Selecting the problem you will be working on: Next is to select the canonical problem set that you would like to use to test and validate the efficiency and correctness of your algorithm implementation.
    4. Thorough research on the algorithm you wish to implement: Researching different, books, articles, blogs and so on about the algorithm you are about to implement will give you a complete idea about the uses and methodologies of the algorithm. This prepares you against possible roadblocks and mistakes that might happen during the process.
    5. Undertake unit testing: Develop and run unit tests for each and every function of your algorithm. This also enables and forces you to understand the expectations as well as the purpose of each unit of code of your algorithm.

    The following are some essential topics of Machine Learning that every learner should be acquainted with:

    • Decision Trees: Used for classification problems, a Decision tree is a type of a supervised learning algorithm. 
    • Support Vector Machines: It is a type of classification methodology that provides a higher degree of accuracy in classification problems. 
    • Naive Bayes: It is based on Bayes' theorem and is a classification technique. 
    • Random Forest algorithm: The Random Forest is basically a collection of randomized decision trees that are trained with the bagging method.

    Faqs

    The Course

    Machine learning came into its own in the late 1990s, when data scientists hit upon the concept of training computers to think. Machine learning gives computers the capability to automatically learn from data without being explicitly programmed, and the capability of completing tasks on their own. This means in other words that these programs change their behaviour by learning from data. Machine learning enthusiasts are today among the most sought after professionals. Learn to build incredibly smart solutions that positively impact people’s lives, and make businesses more efficient!
