What is Machine Learning?

Machine learning is when a machine will learn on its own without being explicitly programmed. The idea that machines can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions without human interaction. Machine Learning is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data and identify patterns. 

What is Machine Learning used for?

Machine learning is mainly used to learn from data sets. This allows for fast analysis of big complex data sets that would take humans a long time to be able to complete. Financial services are using machine learning to help identify important insights in data and prevent fraud. A big use of machine learning today is in transportation. They use it to identify patterns and trends to help make routes more efficient and predict future problems. Machine learning also plays a vital role in self-driving cars that are on the road today. Machine learning is becoming a powerful tool in today's society that will impact almost every person on a daily basis.
