Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence that focuses on the development of algorithms and models that enable computers to learn and make decisions based on data. The fundamental idea of Machine Learning is to enable machines to autonomously learn patterns and information from data without being explicitly programmed.
This powerful discipline has the potential to radically transform a wide range of industries. Let’s look at some examples of how Machine Learning is already present in everyday life.
Search Engines and Machine Learning
Nowadays, the search engines we use leverage Machine Learning techniques to improve various aspects of their functionality. In fact, online search engines, such as Google or Firefox, use Machine Learning algorithms to improve search results based on browsing habits, behaviors that the user usually performs online, and preferences that the user has stated or that the algorithm has caught among the history data.
Machine Learning for personalized advertising
Machine Learning plays a crucial role in personalized advertising, leveraging data and algorithms to tailor ads to individual users based on their preferences, behavior and demographics. How does it work? Through the searches we perform online, our data and browsing behaviors are collected and analyzed by Machine Learning algorithms, which will then propose content more in line with the interests shown. Therefore, the more searches we perform, the more the algorithms learn about our preferences.
The same mode is used for recommendations of products and services online, as well as in the platforms we use for entertainment, for example, a recommended song on Spotify or a recommended movie on Netflix.
Voice recognition uses Machine Learning
Currently, a wide range of industries use voice recognition. Among the best known products are voice assistants such as Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. In these cases, Machine Learning algorithms are used to recognize our voice more and more accurately, understand the way we formulate commands, and thus improve quality and response time.
Cybersecurity and Machine Learning
Digital security services are increasingly implementing Machine Learning algorithms to enhance defense against cyber threats. For example, we find the use of Machine Learning in mailbox spam filters and bank checks that indicate suspicious transactions.
