Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 29/1/2017 [Machine Learning]

Machine learning is an area of computer science and statistical modeling that allows a computer program to predict an outcome or make a decision without being explicitly programmed to do so.

Machine learning, which forms the basis for artificial intelligence (AI), is closely tied to data analytics and data mining programming. Continue reading

Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 11/01/2016 [Greedy Algorithm]

A greedy algorithm is a mathematical process that looks for simple, easy-to-implement solutions to complex, multi-step problems by deciding which next step will provide the most obvious benefit.

Such algorithms are called greedy because while the optimal solution to each smaller instance will provide an immediate output, the algorithm doesn’t consider the larger problem as a whole. Once a decision has been made, it is never reconsidered. Continue reading
