What is Machine Learning?
Machine Learning is a subset of AI and computer science which uses algorithms and statistical models to gradually learn and adapt without explicit human interference. It reflects the way humans learn and develop accuracy by analyzing and drawing inferences from patterns in data. It uses experience and data to improve automatically.
This invention has been around since the 1940s and it has been used in various fields till now. Machine Learning is so intertwined with our lives in today’s age that we use it in our routine activities without even realizing.
