People always find hard to understand which machine learning algorithm has to be applied on given problem. Today we have infinite number of problem and we might think that we have infinite number of solution available around it. But when we start classifying the problems in different categories we usually find that these infinite problems can fir in finite categories and infinite solutions change to finite solutions. In this post, will try to explain more on what is an Algorithm and under which circumstances we have to use which type of machine learning algorithm.
To tell a computer what it has to do, in that case you need to write a program. A program is nothing but a set of instructions in the form of some syntax. This syntax can be written in any programming language like Java, C, Python, Ruby on Rails etc. e.g if you have to write a program to print 1 to 20 numbers, in this case you can opt for any kind of programming language. The syntax will be different but the logic will remain be the same. Now the question comes what is Logic? Logic is nothing but it’s an algorithm. An algorithm is a step by stem procedure of solving a problem in computer world.
Machine learning focuses on the development of the computer programs that can change when exposed to new data. Learning comes from the past experience and accordingly Machine Learning tune to itself. Read More about types of Machine Learning
