Data Science and Machine Learning

What is Data Science?

Data Science is the Study of data. It involves developing methods of recording, storing and analyzing data to effectively extract Information.

In other words we are having the data but we can’t use data as it is.We want to do pre-processing done by modify the given data,deleting some data, and integrated with Machine Learning is called Data Science.

What is Machine Learning?

Arthur Samuel(1959)

Machine Learning is Field of Study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.

Tom Mitchell(1998)

A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some class of tasks T and performance measure P, if its performance at tasks in T, as measured by P, improves with experience E.

I will make a simple example to understand better . The program first needs to find the logic between the pairs and then apply the same logic to predict the number. To find that logic is called “machine learning”. So that after finding the logic it can apply the same logic to predict each number.


There are many applications for machine learning, Includes

  1. Product Recommendation
  2. Email Spam Detection
  3. Fraud and Risk Detection
  4. Health Care
  5. Speech Recognition
  6. Agriculture etc..
