Hidden Truth About Machine Learning

Attention is paid to all sorts of advanced computing concepts such as artificial intelligence and deep learning. It is no surprise as with the increase in computing power and where it’s located (e.g., smart phones and the cloud), the ability to perform complex calculations on data in order to derive sophisticated inferences has never had more promise than it does today. However, one concept often misunderstood is how these sophisticated programs and algorithms get their “smarts.” Sometimes you see claims that AI programs automatically understand your speech or automatically generate meaning from content—all without training. At best, this is misleading, and in some cases, it’s patently false. While it may be true that end users do not have to train some systems or the methods of training are hidden, these…
