Who cares if unsupervised machine learning is supervised learning in disguise?

January 11, 2018

Previously, we saw how unsupervised learning actually has built-in supervision, albeit hidden from the user. In this post we will see how supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms share more in common than the textbooks would suggest. As a matter of fact, both classes can use identical equations for creating mathematical models of the data, and… Read More »

Supervised learning in disguise: the truth about unsupervised learning

December 12, 2017

One of the first lessons you’ll receive in machine learning is that there are two broad categories: supervised and unsupervised learning. Supervised learning is usually explained as the one to which you provide the correct answers, training data, and the machine learns the patterns to apply to new data. Unsupervised learning is (apparently) where the… Read More »
