Machine Learning

Software That Learns
  • Thomas W. Dinsmore


In Chapter Two, we surveyed the history of business analytics as a whole, noting that statistics and machine learning developed separately from data warehousing and business intelligence. In this chapter, we pick up where Chapter Two left off with a review of recent trends in machine learning: convergence, competitions, ensemble learning, scalability and deep learning. We devote a section of the chapter to deep learning basics, and with a survey of open source and commercial software for machine learning.
