In Machine Learning, classification is a supervised learning approach, which can be thought of as a means of categorizing or "classifying" some unknown items into a discrete set of "classes". Classification attempts to learn the relationship between a set of feature variables and a target variable of interest. The target attribute in classification is a categorical variable with discrete values. Given a set of training data points, along with the target labels, classification determines the class label for an unlabeled test case. A good sample of classification is the loan default prediction. Suppose a bank is concerned about the potential for loans not to be ...

Well, get out of the  4G signal booster  because we are giving out information about IBM and how its artificial intelligence tools are becoming humane. So, have a look! There was a time when Jeopardy hit the market and saturated it pretty well. If you don’t remember, Jeopardy was the supercomputer, but today, IBM is cranking up the notch with artificial intelligence. ...

Artificial Intelligence tools are augmenting existing CPQ requests by provisioning “intelligent agents” that can make quotes, as well as manage deals, purposes and discounts across channels. By automating these market processes, companies now can boost cross-selling and up-selling, and also optimize prices based on the ...
