Eight reasons to study Machine Learning

These considerations may be accepted or not, however I hope to show some good starting points before beginning to study Machine Learning: Old fashioned computing techniques are getting more and more useless. Industrial revolution is over and so all kind of merely-automatic machines. It doesn’t mean that an email client or a word processor are going to disappear (even if Google and Microsoft are trying to move everything on the web), but that human beings are beginning considering their software as real mind extension (it’s not science-fiction) and expect new tools to improve their lives. Many complex tasks can be easily solved using very powerful algorithms, in the same way human beings behave. We don’t look for extraordinary precision, however we forecast events without worrying about the fact that there are no deterministic equations behind our choices. Probability is maths for life. The amount of data collected by companies is […]
