# Machine Learning Algorithm

A Machine Learning Algorithm is a learning algorithm that is an automated algorithm and that can be applied by a machine learning system (to solve machine learning tasks).

**AKA:**Automated Learning Technique.**Context:**- It can range from being a Supervised ML Algorithm to being an Unsupervised ML Algorithm.
- It can range from being an Eager Learning Algorithm (based on all available examples) to being a Lazy Learning Algorithm (based only on 'relevant' examples).
- It can range from being a Model-based Learning Algorithm to being an Instance-based Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Single Model Algorithm to being an Ensemble Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Feature-based Learning Algorithm to being a Kernel-based Learning Algorithm (that maps the record into a kernel space).
- It can range from being a Tuple-based Learning Algorithm (with independent records) to being a Relational Learning Algorithm (for relational data).
- It can range from being a Traditional ML Algorithm to being a State-of-the-Art ML Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Data-rich Machine Learning Algorithm to being a Knowledge-rich Machine Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being an Online Learning Algorithm to being a Batch Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Knowledge-based Learning Algorithms (such as inductive learning algorithms) to being a Statistically-based Learning Algorithm (such as statistical modeling algorithms).
- It can range from being a Symbolic Learning Algorithm (for symbolic representations) to being a Black-Box Learning Algorithm (where the learned model is not inspectable).
- It can be related to Computational Statistics Algorithm and Mathematical Optimization Algorithm.

- QUOTE: … When anyone says Machine Learning these days (and indeed since the introduction of the term in 1959 by Arthur Samuel) they mean using examples in same way to induce a representation of some concept that can later be used to select a label or action, based on an input and that saved learned material. Kalman filtering uses multiple data points from a particular process to get a good estimate of what the data is really saying. It does not save anything for later to be used for a similar problem at some future time. So, no, it is not Machine Learning, ...

**Statistical machine learning**merges statistics with the computational sciences --- computer science, systems science and optimization. Much of the agenda in statistical machine learning is driven by applied problems in science and technology, where data streams are increasingly large-scale, dynamical and heterogeneous, and where mathematical and algorithmic creativity are required to bring statistical methodology to bear. Fields such as bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, signal processing, communications, networking, information management, finance, game theory and control theory are all being heavily influenced by developments in**statistical machine learning**.- The field of
**statistical machine learning**also poses some of the most challenging theoretical problems in modern statistics, chief among them being the general problem of understanding the link between inference and computation.
