Why DP & ML?

In the recent years, machine learning has emerged as powerful techniques for solving problem involve huge loads of data. Machine learning provides algorithms and tools that are useful for solving classification and regression tasks in the supervised learning problems, clustering and frequent pattern mining tasks in unsupervised learning problems, tasks of controlling the behavior of machines in reinforcement learning problems. Deep learning (also known as deep structured learning or hierarchical learning) is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on artificial neural networks. Learning can be supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised. Deep learning is a class of machine learning algorithms that use multiple layers to progressively extract higher level features from raw input.
