What are the main two ways in which AI learns?


Artificial intelligence is generally viewed as the technology that can be used to make an item smart or smarter. It’s a technology that can be applied to various fields and has a wide range of applications, be it gaming or security but in this article, I’m going to talk about how AI learns in two main ways: AI has developed into a wildly popular topic in the last few years.

 While we’ve been hearing about “artificial intelligence” for decades, it’s only recently that this field has become widely recognized. And while you’ll never read a definitive article on artificial intelligence (AI) on this site, I’d like to share some of the main ways in which AI learns — both with humans and on its own.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a concept and field of study involving the development of computers to perform tasks that require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, natural language processing, and reasoning.

Supervised Learning

Supervised learning is the process of training a machine to perform a task without any human direction. In this process, the algorithm is given a set of labeled data or training examples and then uses this to learn how to solve the task.

These algorithms are used mainly in supervised learning because they require you to provide it with a set of pre-existing labels for each example. These labels are then used as input for an algorithm that can be used later on in order to provide an answer or prediction.

The main advantage of supervised learning is that you can use all of your existing data sets, which means that if you have some labeled data on hand and some unlabeled data on hand, you can use all of these together in order to train your model and get better results.

This type of learning is especially useful for problems where there are very few examples available for training (such as in many fields involving large amounts of data) but also works well when dealing with small datasets because there may not be enough examples/data points per problem area.

Supervised learning is a technique that involves using a set of pre-defined rules or models to predict or classify new input data. The idea behind supervised learning is that you have some data points and an algorithm to learn from them. For example, if you have a company, you can use your past sales records and make predictions about the future.

Unsupervised Learning

Unsupervised learning is the process of learning without prior knowledge. In other words, a model is built by feeding it data, and the model can learn to solve problems on its own. It’s the least supervised type of learning.

In unsupervised learning, you have a set of inputs (data) and a set of outputs (labels). The goal is for the model to discover relationships between input and output without being explicitly told what those relationships are.

Unsupervised learning occurs naturally when we try to understand our world through data. For example, if you search for “cars” on Amazon, your search results will be mostly about cars — that’s how Google works! But there will also be other results related to cars: news articles about car accidents; reviews from people who bought new cars; etc.

Unsupervised learning is a form of machine learning that does not require the data to be labeled. It relies on analyzing big data sets to identify patterns and trends. In contrast, supervised learning requires the data set to be labeled with metadata (i.e., an indicator of certain characteristics).

Supervised learning is a type of machine learning in which a human trainer provides feedback to an AI system during training so that it can learn how to behave like a human or perform tasks. Training is done by using examples from previous experience rather than observing humans directly. 

For example, an AI system might be taught how to recognize objects in photographs by showing it many different photos and asking it questions about what these images are showing.

“reinforcement learning”

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a subfield of machine learning that aims to learn a function that performs a given task given an example of its performance. RL is applied to a broad range of applications, including robotics and computer vision. It has been shown to have potential in areas such as autonomous vehicles and intelligent agents.

Reinforcement learning uses rewards to motivate the agent to perform certain tasks. When an agent has performed some task, it may be rewarded by receiving a reward or punished by incurring some cost. The agent then updates its policy by adjusting its action so that it can maximize the future reward.

In this context, “reward” refers to any form of information which positively impacts the outcome of an action (or inaction). An example would be a cash payment for completing some task or successfully predicting an outcome based on inputs from sensors (e.g., vision).

 Reinforcement learning focuses on continuous feedback between actions and rewards, whereas other forms of machine learning focus on discrete states or events (such as classification).

Reinforcement learning also called “experience-based learning,” is a type of machine learning in which we encourage machine learning agents to learn by rewarding them with positive feedback when they do things that are good, and punishing them when they perform badly.

“supervised learning”

Supervised learning is the process of creating a model on the basis of known data, then testing that model against new data. It is a relatively simple process, as it only requires you to have enough training data to make your model work. Once you have a set of training examples, you can use them to create a model that can predict what will happen in future situations.

Supervised learning is used in many applications, including image recognition and speech recognition. You might have seen an image classification application on your phone or computer that uses this type of learning. It’s also used when teaching people how to speak new languages or how to recognize objects in images.

“Supervised learning” is a type of AI that uses a set of labeled data to train and improve models. We can use this technique to build computer systems that can see through the fog and grasp the meaning behind it. For example, we could teach a computer to understand images by providing it with thousands of pictures and asking it to identify what’s in them.

 The resulting model would be able to recognize objects like chairs and tables, but it wouldn’t be able to write about them or describe them without more training data.


The challenging part is getting AI to take new information and use it to adjust future outcomes. The machine learning process doesn’t just depend on feeding historical data into the system—it also needs to be taught in order to gain knowledge from new, previously unseen events. This is what’s known as unsupervised learning.

 It’s one of the two main ways that AI is taught to learn (the other being supervised learning). Hopefully, we’ve helped you understand AI a bit better. At this point, artificial intelligence is still a game of sifting through data and finding valuable patterns. As technology continues to evolve, it will become less and less of a mystery, and more of a certainty. We’re excited about what the future holds.

As you can see, the underlying logic is pretty straightforward. Still, the invention of AI poses some interesting metaphysical questions that I hope to cover in another blog post in the near future.
