I am new to Business Analytics and as I go deeper in this field, I learn about new terminology and this time it is Machine Learning.
Machine learning is a scientific discipline that explores the construction and study of algorithms that can learn from data. Such algorithms operate by building a model based on inputs :2 and using that to make predictions or decisions, rather than following only explicitly programmed instructions.
While going through definition I have some doubts, please help me to answer below questions:-
- Is it not dependent on tool and language or can we perform this using any tool like SAS, R or Python?
- Does it use same algorithm like linear, logistic, decision tree and many other classification algorithms?
- As name suggest, do we write codes to understand algorithms behind data set?
- Is this widely used to handle Big data only?
