Machine Learning (ML) is an important part of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Unlike coding various programs explicitly, Machine Learning provides the computers the ability to learn on its own. How does this work? Numerous algorithms and statistical models are used by the computer which helps it to find hidden patterns in the data provided. These patterns help the computer take an accurate guess as to what the outcome will be for new, unknown data. The best part about any ML algorithm is that its ability to predict the outcome increases and the accuracy improves over time when new data is provided.
