Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. 

Focusing on the development of computer programs that can access data and use it to learn for themselves, machine learning applications are turning up everywhere – even in the fight against the planetary coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Chatbots, a product of machine learning, have been an essential communication tool for service providers in the travel and tourism industry to keep travelers updated on the latest travel procedures and disruptions caused by the coronavirus.

In a global pandemic such as COVID-19, technology, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science have become critical to helping societies effectively deal with the outbreak.

Besides assisting health organization in emergencies like the coronavirus pandemic, machine learning technology has become indispensable in financial services, oil and gas industry, government, retail and transportation.

While many machine learning algorithms have been around for a long time, the ability to automatically apply complex mathematical calculations to big data is a recent development. A few widely publicized examples of machine learning applications include:

  • The self-driving Google car
  • Online recommendation offers such as those from Amazon and Netflix
  • Knowing what customers are saying about you on Twitter
  • Fraud detection

Elements required to create good machine learning systems:

  • Data preparation capabilities
  • Algorithms – basic and advanced
  • Automation and iterative processes
  • Scalability
  • Ensemble modeling
