What is Machine Learning?
- Very technical layer of DataIntel’s workspace, data-intensive, part of data science and closely related to data mining. Machine learning is about designing algorithms (like data mining), but emphasis is on prototyping algorithms for production mode, and designing automated systems (bidding algorithms, ad targeting algorithms) that automatically update themselves, constantly train/retrain/update training sets/cross-validate, and refine or discover new rules (fraud detection) on a daily basis. Core algorithms include clustering and supervised classification, rule systems, and scoring techniques. A sub-domain, close to Artificial Intelligence is deep learning.
