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.

Machine Learning Algorithms

The most essential machine learning algorithm for beginners is the k nearest neighbor algorithm. It is simple and uncomplicated that makes it perfect for beginners. Here is how it works:

  • In this algorithm, you need to store a number as ‘k’. This defines the number of training samples that are near to the new data point.
  • A label will be assigned to this new data point. This label is already defined by and assigned to the neighbors.
  • It works on the principle of radius based classification. For identifying and classifying the samples under a fixed radius, the density of the neighbor data points is measured.
  • Known as a non-generalizing machine learning method, this algorithm remembers the provided training data.
  • Classification is performed after the vote is taken among the unknown sample’s neighbors.

The decision to study algorithms while learning Machine Learning depends on the following two factors:

  • If you are planning to just use the machine learning algorithms, you don't need to know any classic algorithms.
  • If you want to use your machine learning concepts to innovate, you need to have a basic understanding of algorithms. This will help you design a new algorithm. You need to know how correct an algorithm is, its complexity, how long does it takes, what are the constraints, etc. Only after this, you will be able to experiment with concepts of machine learning.

The top different types of Machine Learning Algorithms include:

  • Supervised Learning: This involves usage of classified, historical data for mapping input variables to output variables. The following algorithms use supervised learning:
    • Linear Regression –  It follows relationship between input variables (x) and output variable (y) in the equation, y = a + bx
    • Logistic Regression – This is similar to the linear regression. The only difference is that the outcome is probabilistic instead of an exact value. Using a transformative function, this probabilistic outcome is converted into a binary classification.
    • CART - Classification and Regression Trees (CART) uses decision trees. Each outcome's possibility is determined by defined nodes and branches. Each single input variable is the non-terminal node which is then split into various outcomes.
    • Naïve Bayes – This algorithm predicts the possibility of an outcome by using the variable’s basic value. It is called Naïve Bayes theorem because it is based on Bayes theorem and it assumes that all the variables are independent.
    • K-Nearest Neighbours – In this algorithm, first the dataset is charted. Next, to figure out the outcome of the value of the variable, the value of k is predefined. Then, all the nearest instances of k are collected and their average is used for producing the output. 
  • Unsupervised Learning: In this type of learning, output variables are not provided, just the input ones. The dataset’s underlying structure is analyzed for revealing possible associations and clusters. The algorithms that use unsupervised learning include:
    • Apriori - In this algorithm, instances of two items having frequent associations or occurring simultaneously are identified using transactional databases. The relationships are predicted using these associations.
    • K-Means -  In this, similar data are clustered together where each data point is associated with the supposed cluster’s centroid. By ensuring that the distance between the data point and the centroid is closest, the real centroid is determined.
    • PCA -  The Principal Component Analysis (PCA) algorithm is used for data visualization by decreasing the variables' count. The maximum variance of each point is mapped to a new coordinate system. The selected components correspond to the axes.
  • Ensemble Learning: In the ensemble learning, each learner’s results are used and combined to get a better representation of the outcome. Here are a few examples of algorithms that use Ensemble Learning:
    • Bagging – In this, the original dataset is used to generate multiple datasets on which an algorithm is applied to get multiple outcomes. The results are then compiled and performed upon to get the real outcome.
    • Boosting –It is similar to bagging algorithm, except that it works sequentially instead of in parallel. This means that every new dataset created learns from the miscalculations and errors of the previous datasets.

Simple algorithms can be used for solving simple ML problems. It must have the following characteristics:

  • Easy to understand and implement
  • Less time and resources are required

Based on the above-mentioned points, the k-nearest neighbor algorithm is considered to be the easiest algorithm. Here is why:

  • It is the simplest supervised learning algorithm that is best suited for beginners.
  • It can be used for regression and classification problems.
  • It is non-parametric that uses similarity measure for classification.
  • Labeled data is used during the training phase.
  • K nearest surroundings are used to predict the object’s location, where k is the number of neighbors.
  • Some real-life examples of kNN include:
    • Detecting patterns in credit card usage
    • Recognizing vehicle number plate
    • Searching documents containing similar topics.

The algorithm is the backbone of your project. So, it is very important that you select the right algorithm along with the right tools and models. Here, we have compiled a list of things you need to keep in mind before choosing the algorithm for your project:

  • Understanding your data: Your algorithm will depend on the data you are working on. So, you need to have a thorough understanding of the data. To do this, visualize the data using graphs and find a correlation between them. Next step is cleaning the data to remove unnecessary data and find the missing one. Once this is done, you need to perform feature engineering on the data to make it ready for injecting into the model.
  • Get the intuition about the task: You need to have a clear understanding of what your task is. Only after this, you will be able to figure out what type of learning to use. The types of learning include:
    • Supervised learning
    • Semi-supervised learning
    • Unsupervised learning
    • Reinforcement learning
  • Understand your constraints: For every project, you can't just select the best algorithm or tools. Some restraints prohibit this:
    • The available data storage will determine how much data you can use for training and testing.
    • Your hardware will affect the algorithm that you can use. Some algorithms require high computational power that can’t be offered by low-end machines.
    • Time constraints determine the length of the training phase.
  • Find available algorithms: After going through the above steps, you can select the one that follows all the constraints and requirements.

Here is how you can design and implement a machine learning algorithm using python:

  1. Select a programming language: First things first. You need to select a programming language that you will be using for creating Machine Learning algorithms. 
  2. Select the algorithm that you wish to implement: The next step is selecting the algorithm that you want to implement. You need to be precise and select the type, classes, description, and special implementation of the algorithm.
  3. Select the problem you wish to work upon: Next, you need to select the problem set you will be working on. You will have to implement your algorithm on it and validate its efficiency.
  4. Research the algorithm that you wish to implement: Before you implement your algorithm, you need to go through multiple resources to understand its description, outlook, and implementation. This will help you get a perspective on various methods of implementing that algorithm.
  5. Undertake unit testing: Last step is to develop and run unit tests for every function used in the algorithm. Consider this as a test drive of your algorithm.

When you are learning Machine Learning, it is important that you go through every concept. But there are a few topics that require more focus than others. Here, we have compiled a list of the most essential topics of machine learning that one needs to master:

  • Decision Trees: This is a classification problem that is used for creating a supervised learning algorithm. It helps the system in selecting what features need to be selected, what conditions are required for splitting, and what are the conditions for ending that splitting and a particular iteration. Here are a few advantages offered by decision trees:
    • Simple, easy to interpret, understand, and visualize
    • Performs feature selection and variable screening
    • Not affected by the non-linear relationship among the parameters
    • Fewer efforts are required for preparing data
    • Analyzes numerical and categorical data
    • Deals with problems that require multiple outputs
  • Support Vector Machines:  This classification method has a high accuracy rate and can be used for regression problems as well. They offer optimal solutions as they use global minimum instead of local minima. Also, they can be used for linearly and nonlinearly data. With the help of Support Vector Machines' Kernel Trick, feature mapping has become quite easy.
  • Naive Bayes: Based on Bayes theorem, this is a classification technique that assumes that the different predictors are independent of each other. It is highly scalable and requires less training data. It also converges quickly.
  • Random Forest algorithm: It is a supervised learning algorithm that randomizes the input while creating a forest of decision trees. This is done so that no pattern is identified based on its order. This algorithm can be used for classification and regression problems easily.

Machine Learning with Python Washington, DC, USA

To get started with using Python for Machine Learning, you need to follow these steps:

  1. The first step is to find the motivation to get started with Machine Learning.
  2. Install Python SciPy Kit along with all its packages.
  3. Get an understanding of the functions available in python and how they can be used.
  4. Download a dataset and load it. Understand its structure and working using statistical summaries and data visualization.
  5. Practice your programming skills on as many datasets as you can. This will also help you get an in-depth knowledge of ML concepts.
  6. When you start working with projects, begin with easy and simple projects and gradually move towards more complicated projects.

Here are the top python libraries used for implementing Machine Learning with Python:

  • Scikit-learn: This python library helps in data mining, data analysis, and data science.
  • Numpy: When dealing with N-dimensional arrays, this library offers high performance.
  • Pandas: This library is used for extracting and preparing data, and high-level data structures.
  • Matplotlib: It can help in plotting 2D graphs that can be used to better visualize the data.
  • TensorFlow: Used for implementing deep learning, this library trains, setups, and deploys artificial neural networks.

For successfully executing a successful Machine Learning project using python programming language, you need to follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Gathering data: First, you need to gather the data relevant to your project. You will have to apply machine learning concepts on this data. So, remember that better data quality will result in better performance of the ML model.
  • Cleaning and preparing data: After you have collected the data, the next step is cleaning and preparing this data. The data that is generated every day is in the raw form meaning that it is not organized or labeled. Some of the important data can be missing. To fix this, feature engineering is used. This involves two steps – converting the data into the form ready for processing and dividing it into two parts, testing data and training data.
  • Visualize the data: To show the prepared data and find the relationship between the variables, data visualization is required.
  • Choosing the correct model: After you have completely understood the data, you have to choose the algorithm and the model best suited for the data. Your selection will determine how your project performs.
  • Train and test: The next step is using the data for training the ML model. After this, the testing data is used to check how accurate your model is.
  • Adjust parameters: After you have trained and tested the model, you need to adjust the parameters to improve accuracy. 

If you are a beginner and want to start programming with python, here are 6 best tips for you:

  • Consistency is Key: Practice is the key to becoming a great programmer. You need to practice every day. Start with just 30 minutes a day and then gradually increase the coding time. Muscle memory will help you a lot while learning to program.
  • Write it out: Write about what you are learning from the start. It will help you retain things for a longer period. 
  • Go interactive!: The interactive Python shell will help you implement your programming skills, especially the use of structures like strings, lists, dictionaries, etc. To open the python shell, fire up the terminal, type ‘python' and hit enter.
  • Assume the role of a Bug Bounty Hunter: Bugs are a part of a programmer's life. Instead of getting frustrated, you can take this as a challenge. The more bugs you can solve mean you are getting better.
  • Surround yourself with other people who are learning: Surrounding yourself with fellow Python developers will help you learn better. Get in touch with people who are either learning the language or working on it. Their experience will help you get tips and tricks.
  • Opt for Pair programming: In pair programming, there are 2 people involved. The first one is the driver who writes the code. The other one is the navigator who guides the driver through the process and confirms if the code is correct or not. This helps in getting two perspectives on a problem and the debugging process.

Python has several libraries that can be used for Machine Learning including the following:

  • Scikit-learn: This library comes in handy while dealing with data analysis, data mining, and data science.
  • SciPy: It used for manipulating concepts of mathematics, statistics, and engineering.
  • Numpy: It is used for handling vector and matrix operations fast and efficiently.
  • Keras: This library is used for dealing with a neural network.
  • TensorFlow: It provides quick setup, training, and deployment of artificial neural networks using multi-layered nodes.
  • Pandas: This library is used for extracting and preparing data through high-level data structures
  • Matplotlib: It helps plot 2D graphs and provides data visualization
  • Pytorch: It helps in dealing with Natural Language Processing.
