Machine Learning gives machines the power to evolve and learn without being explicitly programmed. ML utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI), whereby users do not have to code an algorithm. Rather it is the ML tools that enhance an algorithm by continuously accessing, learning, and finding patterns from huge amounts of business data.
However, such tasks require a huge computing power that has historically been beyond the capabilities of smartphones or tablets. Meaning, smartphone applications offload the computational heavy tasks upon a remote data center through an Internet connection, rather than running the algorithm on the mobile device itself.
Today, developers have found a way of bringing the ML capabilities onto mobile platforms. Both Apple and Google have launched their frameworks enabling on-device ML. Apple’s Machine Learning framework for iOS devices is known as Core ML.
