Exploring AI Algorithms

In machine learning, an algorithm is a set of rules given to an AI program to help it learn on its own. Well-constructed algorithms are the backbone of artificial intelligence that's actually intelligent.

In my last AI article, we learned about neural networks and their implementations. Now, it's time to look into another popular topic related to artificial intelligence: algorithms. In machine learning, an algorithm is a set of rules or instructions given to an AI program, neural network, or other machine to help it learn on its own. Well-constructed algorithms are basically the backbone of artificial intelligence that is actually intelligent. In this month's AI round-up, we're going to be looking at the most popular AI articles on DZone, checking out the latest news in the world of algorithms, and helping you ensure that your decision tree isn't slower than an entmoot.

All About Algorithms

Check out the top five articles about algorithms on DZone below. These articles are best read in order, so follow along and enhance your algorithm knowledge!

  1. The Benefits of Learning Algorithms by Sarah Mestiri. Before you get too far into things, take a step back and consider why you actually want to learn about algorithms. (But trust me — you do want to!)

  2. 3 Machine Learning Algorithms You Need to Know by Eleni Markou. Next, let's learn about three major machine learning algorithms — decision trees, clustering algorithms, and linear regression — and the differences between them.

  3. Machine Learning Algorithms: Which One to Choose for Your Problem by Daniil Korbut. Now that you know about some different types of algorithms, check out this article to make it easier to choose the right algorithm for your use case.

  4. Visualizing Algorithms Before Implementation by Daniel P. Clark. Let's get a little more complicated now. Learn how to improve your code by visualizing algorithms and making your computer perform a given task in the most efficient way. 

  5. Algorithms and Data Structures for... Web Developers? by John Sonmez. Let's veer a little from the typical uses of algorithms and see how they can be put to use in web development. In this video, get an answer to the question, "How important is it for a web developer to know data structures and algorithms?"
