How would you explain Machine Learning to a school-going kid?

  • Suppose your friend invites you to his party where you meet total strangers. Since you have no idea about them, you will mentally classify them on the basis of gender, age group, dressing, etc.
  • In this scenario, the strangers represent unlabeled data and the process of classifying unlabeled data points is nothing but unsupervised learning.
  • Since you didn’t use any prior knowledge about people and classified them on-the-go, this becomes an unsupervised learning problem.
