What is Machine Learning?

Machine Learning is the next big thing in computer science.From manufacturing to e-commerce and shipping.It is used everywhere and provide solution which are based on the data.

The idea behind Machine Learning is to make a knowledgeable model which is intelligent as human in taking a decision.Now with the increasing power of computation and memory,Machine Learning can provide even better solution than humans

We all are human,we learn from experiences.From the day we born,we start learning things.For example, when go near to fire first time,we feel the heat, and we came back.We learn not to go too close to the fire.

Now think about the working of a computer. It follows the instruction given by humans.It can process millions of instruction in a second and return the result.It can perform the task described by human but cannot take decision by itself.

Here comes the machine learning in action.What will happen if we will give computer ability to think like a human?Isn’t it Awesome? We can give every day’s action in a format that a computer can understand and a math around it and build some model that will help it taking actions in future.

So we learn from experience and computer follows instruction.Instead we can give experience directly to computer to learn and prepare itself for action.Now we define the experience in a structured format.So we can say computer learn from data(Experience) and this process is called Machine Learning.

So,Machine Learning Algorithms are kind of smart algorithms that gives you power of taking decision based on experience.

  • What will happen if we will give computer ability to think like a human?
    If a machine that can perform multiple task simultaneously better and faster than humans , have thoughts and feelings and have a freedom to take actions on its own judgement then the day is not so far when an army of machine can turn up against the whole human race.

    Sir Albert Einstein noted, “Mankind invented the atomic bomb, but no mouse would ever construct a mousetrap.”……i guess atomicbomb should be replaced by – atomicbomb/AI.

    From an interview with the BBC, December 2014 . Sir Stephan Hawkings said
    The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded.
    and also
    From an interview with Wired, November 2017 . Sir Stephan Hawkings said
    The genie is out of the bottle. We need to move forward on artificial intelligence development but we also need to be mindful of its very real dangers. I fear that AI may replace humans altogether. If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that will outperform humans.
