4 Easy to Understand Machine Learning Methods

MACHINE LEARNING? Machine learning is a subfield of computer science focused on designing algorithms that can “learn” from data. The discipline intertwines intimately with the field of artificial intelligence. There are two main kinds of machine learning: unsupervised learning and supervised learning. Both are useful in data analysis. Unsupervised learning involves a machine learning algorithm looking at data and finding patterns, frequently referred to as “features.” Supervised learning, on the other hand, is what you do when you have input data as well as...

He didn’t elaborate on how the tax revenue might be collected or how it might be distributed to the people made redundant by machines. In any case, that would tackle just a small part of the problem. The bigger part, recently addressed by Elan Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Inc. concerns machines becoming smarter than humans – maybe even becoming conscious. Conscious machines,...
