A Futuristic Reality: Harnessing The Power Of The Three Layers Of Machine Learning


Google Assistant can draw on voice command, as seen here at the Google I/O conference in 2018, with the help of machine learning techniques. Artificial intelligence systems powered by machine learning have been creating headlines with applications as varied as making restaurant reservations by phone, sorting cucumbers, and distinguishing chihuahuas from muffins. Media buzz aside, many fast-growing startups are taking advantage of machine learning (ML) techniques like neural networks and support vector machines to learn from data, make predictions, improve products, and enhance business decisions. Unfortunately "machine learning theater" – companies pretending to use the technology to make theirs seem more sophisticated for a higher valuation – is also on the rise. Undeniably, ML is transforming businesses and industries, with some more likely to benefit than others.
