Top 5 Machine Learning Algorithms: Best Algorithms You Must Know


Machine Learning is disrupting the market rapidly. You already know, AI is affecting the way of Production whether for Software, Auto Mobile unit, or any other sector. I am no kidding, Each Industry must have some opening for Data Scientist and Machine Learning Engineer. Do you also want to be future-ready for Machine Learning? Are You looking to learn the Machine Learning algorithms?

Nonparametric Greedy Algorithms for the Sparse Learning Problem

Neural Information Processing Systems

This paper studies the forward greedy strategy in sparse nonparametric regression. For additive models, we propose an algorithm called additive forward regression; for general multivariate regression, we propose an algorithm called generalized forward regression. Both of them simultaneously conduct estimation and variable selection in nonparametric settings for the high dimensional sparse learning problem. Our main emphasis is empirical: on both simulated and real data, these two simple greedy methods can clearly outperform several state-of-the-art competitors, including the LASSO, a nonparametric version of the LASSO called the sparse additive model (SpAM) and a recently proposed adaptive parametric forward-backward algorithm called the Foba. Some theoretical justifications are also provided.

Machine Learning (11) - Machine Learning Algorithms: Explained!


One question that always pops up in any machine learning problem: Which algorithm should I use? What do the algorithms do anyways? After briefly going over a typical machine learning process, we have a closer look at third step, i.e. building the model: What algorithms are out there? Which one should we use? One of Microsoft's Data Scientist, Brandon Rohrer, has written a nice three-part blog series on introducing data science with no jargon: Furthermore, there is one really neat cheat sheet created by Microsoft's Data Science team on when to use which algorithm: Finally, one last resource that I hihgly recommend: Top 10 data mining algorithms in plain English.

Top 10 Machine Learning Algorithms


This was the subject of a question asked on Quora: What are the top 10 data mining or machine learning algorithms? Some modern algorithms such as collaborative filtering, recommendation engine, segmentation, or attribution modeling, are missing from the lists below. Algorithms from graph theory (to find the shortest path in a graph, or to detect connected components), from operations research (the simplex, to optimize the supply chain), or from time series, are not listed either. And I could not find MCM (Markov Chain Monte Carlo) and related algorithms used to process hierarchical, spatio-temporal and other Bayesian models. My point of view is of course biased, but I would like to also add some algorithms developed or re-developed at the Data Science Central's research lab: These algorithms are described in the article What you wont learn in statistics classes.

Which machine learning algorithm should I use?


A typical question asked by a beginner, when facing a wide variety of machine learning algorithms, is "which algorithm should I use?" Even an experienced data scientist cannot tell which algorithm will perform the best before trying different algorithms. We are not advocating a one and done approach, but we do hope to provide some guidance on which algorithms to try first depending on some clear factors.
