Machine learning uses algorithms to turn a data set into a predictive model. Seems simple, but to many it is still complicated. This interesting information came to us from InfoWorld in their article, “Machine learning algorithms explained.”

Machine learning and deep learning have been widely embraced, but very misunderstood. Machine learning is the best tool to analyze, understand and identify a pattern in the data. One of the main ideas behind machine learning is that the computer can be trained to automate tasks that would be exhaustive or impossible for a human being. Machine learning can take decisions with minimal human intervention.

Deep learning is a computer software that mimics the network of neurons in a brain. It is a subset of machine learning and is called deep learning because it makes use of deep neural networks. In deep learning, the learning phase is done through a neural network.
