Machine learning engineers are brilliant minds who use math and computer science to create AI systems that are all about predictive modelling. You see, predictive modelling is a fancy way of saying that they analyze patterns in data to make predictions about what might happen in the future.
Nowadays, there are loads of machine learning and automated AI applications being used, especially in digital media, communication, and technology. Let me give you a couple of examples. Have you ever noticed how on social media, like Facebook or Instagram, they can suggest people for you to tag in photos? Well, that's thanks to machine learning! These platforms can predict who you might want to tag based on the people in the picture.
Another cool application is speech recognition. Imagine being able to talk to a device, like Google Home or Amazon Alexa, and have it understand and convert your speech into written text. Well, that's exactly what machine learning can do! With a little help from the user, these smart devices can accurately transcribe live conversations or recordings into text files.
