In this blog, we'll take a dive into the role of machine learning & artificial intelligence in app development, the opportunities they create for programmers & the fears associated with them.

Nightborn - What is Machine Learning

First things first... What is Machine Learning? 🤔

Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that enables machines to learn from data without being programmed explicitly. It's based on the idea that machines should be able to learn & adapt through experience. It works by using algorithms that can learn from data, identify patterns & make predictions.

💡 It's commonly used for predictive analysis, online recommender systems & Google search algorithms.

Perfect examples of websites that effectively use Machine Learning:

  1. Netflix: The movie & TV streaming giant uses machine learning to personalize its recommendations for each individual user. By analyzing your viewing history & the actions of similar users, the site can make highly accurate suggestions for what to watch next.
  2. Amazon: The e-commerce giant uses ML in a variety of ways to improve its customer experience, including personalizing product recommendations, automating inventory management & improving search results.
  3. Google Photos: Google Photos uses it to automatically organize & categorize all of your photos, making it easy to search & find specific pictures. It can also create animations & other visual effects using the photos in your library.
  4. Spotify: The music streaming service uses machine learning to power its "Discover Weekly" & "Release Radar" playlists, which serve up personalized recommendations for new music based on the listener's listening history.
  5. Facebook: The social media platform uses ML to personalize the news feed for each individual user, prioritizing posts from friends & pages that the user is likely to be most interested in. It also analyzes users' behavior & interests, allowing advertisers to target their ads to specific demographics & interests.

What is Artificial Intelligence? 🤖

AI, on the other hand, is a technology that enables machines to simulate human behavior. It's a larger concept that encompasses many different types of technologies, including machine learning & robotics.
