Getting to know data science: Match machine learning algorithms to find the answer you’re after

The Machine Learning Blog’s three-part series on data science by Brandon Rohrer, senior data scientist at Microsoft, continues by diving into types of questions data science can answer.

As Rohrer explains, “Machine learning (ML) is the motor that drives data science. Each ML method (also called an algorithm) takes in data, turns it over and spits out an answer. ML algorithms do the part of data science that is the trickiest to explain and the most fun to work with…ML algorithms can be grouped into families based on the type of question they answer. These can help guide your thinking as you are formulating your razor sharp question.”

Head over to the Machine Learning Blog to check out those questions.
