How Can I Teach My Machine to Learn?

Like humans, machines learn from experience. They make observations from inputs of images, text, or other data, and then look for patterns. After the machine runs through the mathematical layers, it learns to make better decisions based on the examples it was given. The decision outputs can be continuous (for example, fluctuating prices), binary (yes or no), or categorical (such as recognizing an aircraft, tank, helicopter, or submarine). In the case of a categorical output, the resulting answer will be several variables (for example, attributes that describe the aircraft) instead of a single variable.

The training environment for machine learning applications will roughly fit into one of three major categories: supervised learning, unsupervised learning, or reinforced learning. In this white paper, we will look at both supervised and unsupervised learning, plus the hybrid approach of semi-supervised learning.
