Different Types of Machine Learning Algorithms

Having a clear understanding of the different types of machine learning algorithms is crucial for the success of a machine learning project. Each algorithm has its own strengths, weaknesses, and areas of applicability. Understanding these differences helps to select the most appropriate ML algorithm for a given problem and avoid common mistakes.

KNN Algorithm in Machine Learning

K-Nearest Neighbor is a supervised learning algorithm that can be used to solve classification and regression problems. This algorithm learns without explicitly mapping input variables to the target variables. It is probably the first machine learning algorithm, and due to its simplicity, it is still accepted in solving many industrial problems.

Logistic Regression in Machine Learning

Logistic Regression is one of the most used machine learning algorithms. It is a supervised learning algorithm where target variables should be categorical, such as positive or negative, Type A, B, or C, etc. Although the name contains the term "regression", we can also say that it can only solve classification problems.

Classification and Regression in Machine Learning

We categorize supervised learning into two different classes: Classification Problems and Regression Problems. Both classification and regression in machine learning deal with the problem of mapping a function from input to output. However, in classification problems, the output is a discrete (non-continuous) class label or categorical output, whereas, in regression problems, the output is continuous.

Support Vector Machine in Machine Learning (ML)

SVM, also known as support vector machines, is one of the most popular algorithms in machine learning and data science. Experts consider this one of the best "Out of box" classifiers. In this article, we will develop a thorough understanding of SVMs, relating it with SVC and Maximal Margin Classifier along with step-wise implementation.

Naive Bayes Classifier in Machine Learning

Naive Bayes is a popular supervised machine learning algorithm that predicts the categorical target variables. This algorithm makes some silly assumptions while making any predictions. But the most exciting thing is: It still performs better or is equivalent to the best algorithms. So let's learn about this algorithm in greater detail.

Decision Tree Algorithm in Machine Learning

Decision tree algorithm in machine learning is a hierarchical breakdown of a dataset from root to leaf nodes based on attributes to solve a classification or regression problem. They are non-parametric supervised learning algorithms that predict a target variable's value. We have discussed various decision tree implementations with python.

Bias Variance Tradeoff in ML

When we talk about the machine learning model, one question comes to mind: What are the errors associated with that prediction? Bias and Variance are those error-causing elements, and ideas about these errors will help to diagnose the model. Bias, Variance and Bias-Variance tradeoffs are frequently asked questions in machine learning interviews.
