What Is Model Training?
A machine learning training model is a process in which a machine learning (ML) algorithm is fed with sufficient training data to learn from.
A training model is a dataset that is used to train an ML algorithm. It consists of the sample output data and the corresponding sets of input data that have an influence on the output. The training model is used to run the input data through the algorithm to correlate the processed output against the sample output. The result from this correlation is used to modify the model.
This iterative process is called “model fitting”. The accuracy of the training dataset or the validation dataset is critical for the precision of the model.
Model training in machine language is the process of feeding an ML algorithm with data to help identify and learn good values for all attributes involved. There are several types of machine learning models, of which the most common ones are supervised and unsupervised learning.
Supervised learning is possible when the training data contains both the input and output values. Each set of data that has the inputs and the expected output is called a supervisory signal. The training is done based on the deviation of the processed result from the documented result when the inputs are fed into the model.
Unsupervised learning involves determining patterns in the data. Additional data is then used to fit patterns or clusters. This is also an iterative process that improves the accuracy based on the correlation to the expected patterns or clusters. There is no reference output dataset in this method.
