Which one of these algorithms should I use if I want my machine to start learning? So far, my machine is still just a plain old computer and is only capable of being programmed (with algorithms) and running those programs. I guess the algorithms I have been using are the dumb kind b/c my machine has yet to learn anything. What am I doing wrong? Maybe I need one of those new fangled artificial intelligences to help my machine learn. I have heard they exist now, though I have yet to see one, or hear from one, or meet one, or use one, or anything, but I am kind of a shut in and don’t get out much. I am sure they are everywhere. I just need to look harder.
