The Importance of Machine Learning

Data is considered the oil of the 21st Century, with a massive amount of data being produced daily from various sources such as websites, businesses, social networks, Eand electronic media, etc.

According to research 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day and its production is growing at a fast pace. It is also estimated by the researchers that over time 1.7 MB of data will be created every second. The data generated could be in multiple forms such as structured, semi-structured and unstructured.

The unstructured or raw data isn’t valuable but the value is created when the data is gathered and processed completely andcan extract meaningful insights out of it. Machine learning helps to extract meaningful information from a complex and huge set of data and feed it to a machine learning model so that it learns automatically and also improves performance in the future.

Machine Learning helps in many ways such as

·  It facilitates businesses to take better data driven decisions for their business

· It helps healthcare organizations in the diagnosis of diseases and prescribing medicines.

· Government agencies can formulate policies based on the predictions made by the machine learning model

·  Fraudulent Purchase Transactions can be easily detected using the machine learning model

·  It can recommend products to customers based on their purchase history and choices they make on a website.
