Machine Learning: An In-Depth Guide - Overview, Goals, Learning Types, and Algorithms

This article was written by Alex Castrounis. Alex is the founder of InnoArchiTech

Introduction:

Machine learning is a very hot topic for many key reasons, and because it provides the ability to automatically obtain deep insights, recognize unknown patterns, and create high performing predictive models from data, all without requiring explicit programming instructions.

Despite the popularity of the subject, machine learning’s true purpose and details are not well understood, except by very technical folks and/or data scientists.

This series is intended to be a comprehensive, in-depth guide to machine learning, and should be useful to everyone from business executives to machine learning practitioners. It covers virtually all aspects of machine learning (and many related fields) at a high level, and should serve as a sufficient introduction or reference to the terminology, concepts, tools, considerations, and techniques of the field.

This high level understanding is critical if ever involved in a decision-making process surrounding the usage of machine learning, how it can help achieve business and project goals, which machine learning techniques to use, potential pitfalls, and how to interpret the results.

Note that most of the topics discussed in this series are also directly applicable to fields such as predictive analytics, data mining, statistical learning, artificial intelligence, and so on.

What you will find in the article: 

  • Machine Learning Defined
  • Machine Learning Process Overview
  • Types of Learning
  • Machine Learning Goals and Outputs
  • Machine Learning Algorithms
