# Model-based Learning Algorithm

A Model-based Learning Algorithm is a learning algorithm that can be applied by a model-based learning system to solve a model-based learning task (which requires the production of a model-based prediction function).

**AKA:**Supervised Model-based Learning Algorithm, Model-based Training Algorithm.**Context:**- It can range from being a Supervised Model-based Learning Algorithm to being an Unsupervised Model-based Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Model-based Classification Algorithm to being a Model-based Ranking Algorithm to being a Model-based Estimation Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Lazy Model-based Learning Algorithm to being an Eager Model-based Learning Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Discriminative Learning Algorithm to being a Generative Learning Algorithm.

**Example(s):**- a Regression Algorithm, such as a least-squares function fitting algorithm.
- a Statistical Modeling Algorithm, such as s Linear Model Learning Algorithm or a Logistic Regression Model Learning Algorithm
- a Decision Tree Learning Algorithm, such as a C4.5 Algorithm.
- a Discriminative Machine Learning Algorithm, such as a logistic regression.
- a Neural-Network Learning Algorithm, such as a backprop learning algorithm.
- a Kernel-based Learning Algorithm, such as an SVM algorithm.
- …
