Fremont, CA: Machine learning offers a powerful tool for helping people increase decision-making bandwidth, responsiveness, precision, and quality of results as businesses face increasing volumes of data that can overpower individuals' decision-making capacity.
Machine learning software systems employ advanced algorithms to comprehend the data and behavior handled by relevant processes, as well as to learn how to enhance those processes. The machine's efficiency is enhanced and optimized as new observations of data, events, reactions, and changes in the data environment are analyzed by the algorithms.
Supervised learning refers to situations in which the software machine is taught by example. In these cases, examples of the desired inputs and outputs are given to the machine, which uses them to evaluate connections and logic in order to provide the correct response. This is similar to teaching children to do a math problem by "showing their job" and then assisting them in doing it faster or applying the same functions to other problems until the consistency of the method has been verified.
Semi-supervised learning takes things a step further by providing the method with certain data that has identified answers and other data that has not been labeled with the answers. This method can be very useful when the data set is too broad to describe completely or has subtle variations that cannot be fully identified upfront. Semi-supervised learning allows the system to use the given inputs and outputs to extrapolate rules that can be applied to the remaining data.
Unsupervised learning happens when a computer is used to evaluate datasets in order to recognize patterns and create associations and relationships. The method cannot be given a response key ahead of time in unsupervised learning. Instead, the procedure is modeled after how humans actually observe the environment – by drawing inferences and grouping related objects together. The system's observations and inferences become more refined and precise as it observes and analyzes more data.
