What is "Learning Algorithm" in Machine Learning

Just a basics on Machine Learning

Alice has just begun taking a course on machine learning. She knows that at the end of the course, she will be expected to have “learned”all about this topic. A common way of gauging whether or not shehas learned is for her teacher, Bob, to give her a exam. She has done well at learning if she does well on the exam.

But what makes a reasonable exam? If Bob spends the entire semester talking about machine learning, and then gives Alice an exam on History of Pottery, then Alice’s performance on this exam will not be representative of her learning. On the other hand, if the (The general supervised approach to machine learning: a learning algorithm reads in training data and computes a learned function f . This function can then automatically label future text examples.)

exam only asks questions that Bob has answered exactly during lectures, then this is also a bad test of Alice’s learning, especially if it’s an “open notes” exam. What is desired is that Alice observes specific examples from the course, and then has to answer new, but related questions on the exam. This tests whether Alice has the ability to  generalize. Generalization is perhaps the most central concept in machine learning. This Machine learning with data science hands-on really useful.

Examples for Machine Learning

As a running concrete example, we will use that of a course recommendation system for undergraduate computer science students. We have a collection of students and a collection of courses. Each student has taken, and evaluated, a subset of the courses. The evaluation is simply a score from −2 (terrible) to +2 (awesome).

The job of the recommender system is to predict how much a particular student (say, Alice) will like a particular course (say, Algorithms).

Given historical data from course ratings (i.e., the past) we are trying to predict unseen ratings (i.e., the future). Now, we could be unfair to this system as well. We could ask it whether Alice is likely to enjoy the History of Pottery course. This is unfair because the system has no idea what History of Pottery even is, and has no prior experience with this course. On the other hand, we could ask it how much Alice will like Artificial Intelligence, which she took last year and rated as +2 (awesome).

We would expect the system to predict that she would really like it, but this isn’t demonstrating that the system has learned: it’s simply recalling its past experience. In the former case, we’re expecting the system to generalize beyond its experience, which is unfair. In the latter case, we’re not expecting it to generalize at all.

This general set up of predicting the future based on the past is at the core of most machine learning. The objects that our algorithm will make predictions about are examples. In the recommender system setting, an example would be some particular Student/Course pair (such as Alice/Algorithms). The desired prediction would be the rating that Alice would give to Algorithms.

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.
