What is Machine Learning?

  • one where you provide the “machine” (code written on a computer…) with data that already has the answers with the goal that when you give it new data without the answers that it will provide the correct answers
  • another is when you do not provide the answers, just the data, and you want the “machine” to group things in some logical way, that logic depends on the code
  • and the third is one I have never used so I may trip up here…here the “machine” can take data with answers plus it learns from new data coming in and makes the best decision that way. It’s what is used for self-driving cars, and when you play chess against a computer…I think
