Machine learning is considered a sub specialty of computer science, and is the resulting evolution of early artificial intelligence technology. Machine learning technology can algorithmically parse data, learn from the data, and make predictive decisions around data. This is done with by way of decision trees, programmatic logic and Bayesian probability techniques. Machine learning leverages numerous algorithms in addition to Bayesian such as associated rule, clustering, decision tree, dimensionality reduction, deep learning, ensemble, memory-based, neural networks regression, regularization and support vector machines. Many data scientists use the finding of machine learning to help understand complex models and uncover insights, which can then drive many business decisions. Historically, programmatic logic is explicit in that machines can do a task as directed by code, which carries the inherent limitation of the embedded coding itself, and the minds behind it. However, machine learning has the tremendous leverage of learning from implicit directives, and arriving at outcomes that would not have otherwise been known. It’s this data that which can be utilized for advanced analytics, and advanced decision making. From machine learning derives a very practical technology called deep learning, which can be valuable for specific tasks such as facial recognition, image recognition, self-driving vehicles, weather patterns and even preventative healthcare.
There is much yet to discover in the frontier of machine learning, and many experts would agree we are only at the dawn of this new era of cognitive computing. The applications for machine learning for business and day to day life is quite staggering. The onset of self-driving vehicles is a relevant example of just how much impact machine learning jobs could make on the transportation industry. Similar to artificial intelligence, machine learning technology comes with many debatable topics regarding ethics, privacy, security and public safety. These issues will need to be navigated and resolved legislators, commercial business and the public. This is true with any new frontier in technology. As machine learning evolves there will be many emerging benefits that come into focus such as advanced natural language processing (NLP), collaborative learning, reinforcement learning and increased automation; especially in repetitive tasks. Machine learning will continue to greatly impact the industry of internet-of-things (IoT), as its cognitive abilities can be valuable in millions of devices. More information on IoT jobs can be found here. Now let’s take a look at some career related considerations for machine learning jobs and how that affects employment in the field.
The employment niche of machine learning is beginning to explode. This is a very good place to position one’s self for rapid career advancement. There is a worldwide shortage of talent and the expertise needed is quite vast. Like many careers related to data science, unique skill-sets such as neural networks for example, are in high demand. Although university programs tend to be educating more so in the broader field of computer science and data science, there are still ways to enter the market by achieving specialized skills in statistics, predictive analytics, advanced computation, deep learning, natural language processing, python programming and even software engineering. These unique skill-sets are in high demand and easily crossover to many data science jobs, analytics jobs and even cybersecurity jobs. Finding the right job in the machine learning field will not be easy, but it’s a good practice to align yourself with the right communities and platforms for professional networking. Many of the social platforms would be a good place to align with colleagues in the industry. Also, icrunchdata is a great place to stay informed of latest news and employers that are hiring.
