Machine learning

Machine learning is the subfield of computer science that is being continuously developed from traditional era to modern era. In past computer algorithms used to be explicitly programmed which was used by the computer to solve or calculate the given problem. But now day’s machine learning algorithms instead allows the computer to train on past data to improve its result or solution for the given task. (Tagliaferri, 2017/9/28)

Algorithms are often elegant and incredibly useful tools used to accomplish tasks. They are mostly invisible aids, augmenting human lives in increasingly incredible ways. However, sometimes the application of algorithms created with good intentions leads to unintended consequences. It can also be called as encapsulation. (Ranie, 2017)

 Machine learning is also the field of computer science that has the ability to learn by itself without being programmed clearly or in a detailed way. The trend of Machine learning in computer science is growing significantly now days.  (Tagliaferri, 2017/9/28)

In 1950 a man named Alan turning created the “Turing test”. Which was able to determine if the computer has a real intelligence. In 1952 for the very first-time computer learning program was written by Arthur Samuel and the name of the program was the game of checkers. In this program, the more user used to play the game computer used to improve at the game by studying which moves made up winning strategies and incorporating those moves into its program. (Marr, 2016)

 

1.2 Current scenariooverview

 

Machine learning is becoming a dominant field of computer science so, machine learning is the future of computer science which must be learned by today’s generation people in order to bring dramatic revolution in field of computer science. As this is the age of big data machine learning is being used in various field of science, from astronomy to biology as well as in everyday life of people, as we use digital devices more data is continuously being generated and collected as well. Those data may not be of any use to many people but, some smart people find new ways to use that data and turns it into a useful product or service. In this transformation, machine learning plays a huge role. (Alpaydin, 2014/8/22)

 

2. Background

 

2.1 Elaboration

 

In today’s world, Machine learning is used by many companies and industries due to its ability which lets computer perform the given task more quickly than human could do without being directly programmed to do certain task, according to nivem Singh, the program and community manager for intel’s student program for AI part of the intel nirvana Al. academy, the program showcases innovative work done by students at universities around the world. (Gilbert, 2017)

Machine learning has changed the way that technology used to perform given task. For example, let us consider a supermarket that has a huge showroom for all kinds of goods. Those goods are sold to millions of customers all around the world. So, every day there is a huge transaction that is stored in the computer. In supermarket, customer wants to find the goods in a cozy way that suits them or their work and that satisfy their needs. Whereas owner of the supermarket wants to increase the profit and sales of the goods by predicting customers need and demand which is about next to impossible without machine learning. So, to solve this problem we need an algorithm to run in the computer, which we don’t have. But, supermarket has data of every customer like what customers were looking for, what they bought. Analyzing such data helps us understand the process and we can predict what customer will buy or interested in that helps the owner to maximize the sales and profit as well. (Alpaydin, 2014/8/22)

 

 

There are some of the real-world application of machine learning that is already used in real life they are:

i.              Speech recognition:

Today’s Speech recognition is in more practice then before. Speech recognition enables the recognition of spoken language into text form by computers, which uses machine learning in order to train the system to recognize speech. Because there is a high rate of an accurate result when the system is trained rather than the untrained system.

 

ii.            Computer vision:

Some of the computer vision that is developed by using machine learning are face recognition system and system that classify microscope images of cells automatically. For example in us more than 85% of the handwritten emails are arranged automatically, using trained software that uses machine learning.

 

iii.           Bio surveillance:

Machine learning is playing a very important role in detection the diseases. For example, the project called RODS collects the data of admission reports to emergency rooms across western Pennsylvania, and with the use of machine learning software the data of admitted patients are analyzed in order to detect the symptoms for a particular patients diseases and their geographical distribution. Some current work involves adding of data of purchased medicine in medical stores to improve the machine learning system.

 

iv.           Robot control:

Machine learning is wildly used in robots especially to acquire control strategies. For example, there was a completion called Darpa-sponsored that involved 100 miles running race in the desert which was won by a Robert that used machine learning in which Robert self-collected the data and used it in detecting the distance objects due to which Robert was able to win. (Mitchell, 2006)

 

3. Implementation

 

3.1 Idea Quality

 

My idea for machine learning is to bring revolution in the field of marketing in Nepal. Machine learning is a new trend in the computer system that is being wildly used by many companies in order to achieve their goals. So implementing machine learning in Nepal will be difficult as well as challenging. However, once we are able to implement it then it will totally change the way we do marketing. As I said before machine learning can predict future by analyzing past data so we can predict what customer is willing to buy or interested in which results as an improvement in the sales of goods and profit. 

 

3.2 Plan of the implementation

 

I am planning to implement machine learning with Chaudhary group (CG) in near coming future. Because Chaudhary group is one of the leading multination company of Nepal that has 12 global partners and associates as well as Chaudhary group is a presence in more the 20 countries. So with the help of machine learning marketing field of Chaudhary group will get improved significantly in upcoming future. As machine learning will helps in reducing cost 

3.3 Technical skills of machine learning

 

i.              python:

To implement machine learning we require a good knowledge python. Python is a programming language has its own role to play in machine learning. Python contains machine learning algorithm that produces compact.

 

ii.            Applied math and algorithms:

Math and algorithms play very important role in machine learning without it machine learning cannot function. Because in order to function machine learning need certain algorithms and math that helps to understand subject and discriminate models.

 

iii.           Distributed computing:

Machine learning takes huge number of data sets in order to perform task as it has to analyze past data and improve the algorithms on its own. Storing huge number of data in a single machine is not possible so we need different computer in order to process data.

 

iv.           Learning more about advance signal processing techniques:

There are lots of signal processing techniques now days some of them are contourlets, shearlets, bandlets which can be used to solve our problems. (strife, 2015)

 

3.4 Hardware requirement:

 

i.              Graphics processing unit(GPU):

We require a good Graphics processing unit in order to perform given task smoothly. One is GeForce 9000series.

ii.            Central processing unit(CPU):

In order to run machine learning algorithm we require a high central processing unit like 3.8 GHz with core i7-6850k.

iii.           System memory:

At least 8 GB of memory is needed which can be changed later up to 64 GB later in motherboard.

iv.           Storage:

HHD hard disk at list 1TB is required.

v.            Cooling:

Cooling computers helps to maintain the temperature of computer as computer gets heated during its long time use. If computer get heated more it will effect in its preformation so, cooling is needed.

vi.           Power supply:

If require high capacity of computers for machine learning so, high power supply is also needed form 1400 watts. (ravankar, 2017)

 

4. CONCLUSION

 

4.1 SUMMARY OF KEY FINDING:

 

Simply, the goal of machine learning is to analyze the certain given data to a computer and improve the given task based on past experience that can be understood and utilized by people. (Alpaydin, 2014/8/22)

 

Machine learning has become more popular from recent year even though it was started in late 90s. But, still very few company uses it to improve their company sales while other are planning to implement. It is being continuously being innovated.

 

4.2 FUTURE ESCALATION:

 

                    

In near future every task done in industries will be done using machine. Industries must use machine learning in order to be in the marketing race with other industries because machine learning is the future of computer science so, Industries must join the future. (Tank, 2017)

In the near future machine learning is likely to be widely implemented in most of fields with in computer science. Mostly in marketing field due because it it eliminates business marketing’s greatest enemy, brings real time to life, it reduces costs and help to structure marketing content. (Samuelson, 2017)
