Questions & Answers

Q: What is the difference between supervised and unsupervised learning?

Supervised learning uses labeled and structured data to train models with the goal of maximizing predictive accuracy, while unsupervised learning works with unlabeled and unstructured data to derive structure and relationships from the data.

Q: What are the main modes of learning models in supervised learning?

The main modes in supervised learning are regression, which is used for predicting continuous outputs, and classification, which is used for predicting discrete outputs.

Q: What are the primary types of learning models in unsupervised learning?

Unsupervised learning has two primary types of learning models: clustering, which is used for discrete data, and association, which is used for continuous data to find correlations between features.

Q: Why is dimensionality reduction important in unsupervised learning?

Dimensionality reduction helps in reducing complexity in the feature space and allows association algorithms to find meaningful correlations in the data. It helps avoid the curse of dimensionality and overfitting.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Supervised learning uses labeled and structured data to train models for predictive accuracy, with regression for continuous outputs and classification for discrete outputs.

  • Unsupervised learning works with unlabeled and unstructured data to derive structure and relationships, with clustering for discrete data and association for continuous data.

  • Dimensionality reduction is important in unsupervised learning to extract meaningful correlations from high dimensional data, and manifold learning algorithms help in representing data in reduced feature sets.
