Types of machine learning.
- Supervised - teach the computer how to do something.
- Unsupervised - computer learns by itself.
- Reinforced Learning.
- Recommender systems.
- Classification problems where output is from set of discrete values.
- Email is spam or not.
- Regression problems where result is within a continuous output.
