Explore the world of machines learning where machines learn and teach us too!

Many of us may know that machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence. It gives systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.

Essentially, this technique focuses on the development of computer programs that can access data and then use it learn themselves. It is actually a classic method of learning that learns how to learn. All one needs to know is the basic mechanism so that one can use it well. After all, there is always a difference between making use of something and making efficient use of something. This efficiency can come only we understand it completely and know all the aspects that it, in this case, machine learning operates on.

Machine learning uses data analysis that automates analytical model building. The basic premise is that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.Naturally, with less human intervention, there would be more growth as there would be minimal dependency of human beings. All one does need is a few human beings who program it intelligently and efficiently to not just do it once but many times and also keep learning from each experience of the machine itself. This may sound like science fiction but the fact is, this is the new reality.


Evolution of the new reality

Due to new computing technologies, machine learning today is not like machine learning of the past. When it began, it was based pattern recognition and the theory that computers can learn without being programmed to perform specific tasks. Soon,  researchers interested in artificial intelligence wanted to see if computers could learn from data. Here, the repetitive aspect of machine learning is important because as models are exposed to new data, they are able to independently adapt. Machines learn from previous computations. By analysing this, they produce reliable, repeatable decisions and results. This is not something that is new but in recent years, it  has gained fresh momentum.



Why is this important?

More interest in machine learning is due to the same factors that have made data mining and Bayesian analysis more popular than ever. Primary factors are growing volumes and varieties of available data, computational processing that is cheaper and more powerful, and affordable data storage.

Taken together as all of this is happening at the same time, it means that it is now possible to quickly and automatically produce models that can analyze huge amount of data and deliver faster, more accurate results. Therefore, organisations are making use it. They do this by building precise models so that they have a better chance of identifying profitable opportunities – or avoiding unknown risks.

The fact is many machine learning algorithms have indeed been around for a long time. However, the ability to automatically apply complex mathematical calculations to huge amounts of data that is known as big data – over and over, faster and faster – is a recent development. Here are a few widely publicized examples of machine learning applications we may be familiar with. In fact, the beauty of machine learning is that many of us are using it without even knowing this is what we are using. 
For instance,

  • The heavily hyped, self-driving Google car? This is the essence of machine learning.
  • Recommendation that are given online to offers such as those from Amazon and Netflix? This is Machine learning applications for everyday life.
  • Customer views about you on Twitter? This is machine learning combined with linguistic rule creation.
  • Fraud detection? This is one of the very important uses of machine learning in our world today.

In Sum
Learning now encompasses deep learning everywhere in the digital world. This is nothing but a part of machine learning concerned with algorithms inspired by the structure and function of the brain called artificial neural networks. Now, this is a complex subject but we must know that though termed ‘artificial’, neural networks are modelled on the human brain.
This is bound to become a success as the human brain is indeed the best machine of all. So, it does make sense to get guidance and inspiration from this wonderful machine. To make complete use of it, we need to understand this mechanism which is what artificial intelligence itself is all about.  No wonder it is a field that is creating more and more interest everywhere and redefining the way we live, work and exist.

We know that we as a species are not the most powerful of all. It is our brain that has made us rule the world. With artificial intelligence stepped in, this is bound to catapult and take us even further in all that we can do.

For the digital world is not just about machines but using the machines in the most effective manner.
AI, primarily in the form of deep-learning algorithms running on powerful graphics processing chips, is already widely used in enterprises, which will become increasingly data-driven as computing resources continue their historic price/performance/availability trends and the algorithms become ever more sophisticated.
Opinion is currently divided on the effect that widespread AI adoption will have on the job market and workplace culture, but what's certain is that AI will continue to develop rapidly and that possible economic and social upheaval needs to be on the political agenda.
As far as AI is concerned, we are definitely living in the proverbial 'interesting times'.
To fit in here, we definitely need to embrace machine learning and all the skills we can learn through it and from it.
This is actually not impossible but does require the passion to learn and keep learning. For this world keeps changing and we need to move with it to grow and succeed.
In that sense, learning machine learning is as essential as learning to walk in the digital era. The good news is that we can begin anytime from anywhere we are placed to enter in this arena.

Though this may sound cliched, we must examine what are we waiting for to succeed in this open, highly welcoming domain.

Behavioral Targeting

What is Behavioral Targeting?
It  refers to a range of technologies and techniques used by online website publishers and advertisers which allows them to increase the effectiveness of their campaigns by capturing data generated by website and landing page visitors. When it is done without the knowledge of users, it may be considered a breach of browser security and illegal by many countries' privacydata protection and consumer protection laws.

Why Learn Behavioral Targeting?

How Behavioral Targeting will help my business Grow?



When a consumer visits a web site, the pages they visit, the amount of time they view each page, the links they click on, the searches they make and the things that they interact with, allow sites to collect that data, and other factors, create a 'profile' that links to that visitor's web browser. As a result, site publishers can use this data to create defined audience segments based upon visitors that have similar profiles. When visitors return…

eLearning

Is there any time in our Life where we are not Learning...???


if that's SO then how come we all are not Inspired and Excited about Learning?


How to combine the two Fun and Growth while Learning?






In previous times, before the trend of e-learning resources like studying management techniques, individuals who wanted to create educational material either to offer or for use within an company created paper-based material like guides, and rich the program with movie and sound material. Of course, publication posting, is still a big business. And the idea of generating an income by developing knowledge to be used in an educational or professional setting is still interesting for many individuals.
The conventional education and learning where a undergraduate gets to fulfill a lot of person & return his or her concepts is something that is losing with the e-Learning factor. There is just no physical contact & everything is just, exclusive when you discuss of e learning So, it is al…
