## Top 10 Solution Approaches for Supervised Learning Problems

This article represents top 10 solutions approaches that could be used to solve supervised learning problems. For those unaware of what is supervised learning problem, here is the supervised learning definition from Wikipedia: Supervised learning is the machine learning task of inferring a function from labeled training data.[1] The training data consist of a set of training examples. In supervised learning, each example is a pair consisting of an input object (typically a vector) and a desired output value (also called the supervisory signal). A supervised learning algorithm analyzes the training data and produces an inferred function, which can be used for mapping new examples. Following are two different kind of supervised …
