    The purpose of this literature review is to provide a comprehensive analysis the different machine learning algorithms, building on the foundation work of scholar Mr. Batta Mahesh. We conclude that, Machine learning, a division of Artificial Intelligence, allows computers to gain knowledge and boost their efficiency without the need of direct programming. It has seamlessly integrated into our daily lives, playing a pivotal role in suggesting products during online shopping and organizing photos on social media platforms. Machine learning algorithms encompass various types, including supervised, unsupervised, semi- supervised, and reinforcement learning. Supervised learning involves working with limited and labeled data, enabling the model to predict accurate outcomes without altering the process until it independently generates an output. On the other hand, unsupervised learning deals with vast datasets that lack labels or categorization, mimicking how humans learn from their experiences. Unsupervised learning tackles two main challenges: clustering and association. Semi- supervised learning utilizes a combination of labeled and unlabeled data to train models, with the goal of accurately predicting output variables. This type of learning is commonly employed in image and text classification tasks. Reinforcement learning proves beneficial in dynamic environments, such as autonomous driving, where sudden changes in traffic routes can be unpredictable. In summary, machine learning has become an indispensable part of our daily routines, empowering computers to adapt and learn in a manner similar to humans.

    This literature review aims to conduct a thorough analysis of various algorithms of ML by taking some real-world examples, expanding upon the groundwork laid by scholar Mr. Iqbal H. Sarker. We conclude that, the article explores the application of machine learning algorithms in different domains, such as cybersecurity, traffic prediction, and healthcare. Machine learning algorithms play a vital role in making intelligent decisions and analyzing data, thereby

    enhancing system performance and making applications more intelligent. In the realm of cybersecurity, clustering techniques are employed to identify cyber abnormalities and policy violations, while classification algorithms are utilized to detect cyber-attacks and intrusions. In the context of traffic prediction and transportation, machine learning and deep learning models assist in mitigating issues like traffic congestion, road accidents, high fuel prices, and pollution. Prominent applications like Google Maps and Mapplings utilize these models to forecast safe and efficient routes for users. Healthcare centers, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, also reap the benefits of machine learning by predicting the spread of viruses and classifying patients at high risk. In the digital realm, machine learning algorithms find applications in various fields, making work more effective and efficient. There are also indefinite examples over digital world where we used machine learning to make the work or application more define as well as work more without human interference. Overall, machine learning algorithms are indispensable in addressing real-world challenges and enhancing the efficiency of diverse applications.

    The objective of this literature review is to offer a comprehensive scrutiny of big data and ML for material science, developing further from the initial efforts of scholars Jose F. Rodrigues jr1, Larisa Florea2, Maria C. F. de Oliveria, Dermot Diamond3 & Osvaldo N. Oliveria jr4. We coclude that, big data pertains to the vast amount of structured and unstructured data that poses challenges in term of management through conventional databases. It is crucial in material science, such as computer stimulations, miniaturized sensors, and designing complex experimental procedures. Big data offers inspection tools for browsing and visualization, as well as a systematic analysis tool. Machine learning (ML) is a part of artificial intelligence that predicts future data based on past data and analyzes input datasets using ML algorithms. When combined, they produce incredible results. ML plays a significant role in managing the 5Vs of big data to predict accurate results. The 5Vs are: volume, velocity, variety, veracity, and value. Big data facilitates data extraction and enhances learning methodologies by offering analytical tools. The use of computational tools to uncover fresh materials and their attributes is a longstanding practice, as evidence by the DENDRAL project in 1965 being the first project on computer-assisted organic synthesis. With advancements in big data and ML approaches, there is a growing interest in exploring the vast space of possible material solutions. This paper highlights the role of chemical sensors in generating big data and how sensors and biosensors play a crucial role in problem-solving through ML. In medical and industrial settings, methods similar to big data and machine learning are used to analyze data from sensors and biosensors, facilitating computer-assisted diagnosis and fault prediction.

    The primary goal of this literature review is to present the core concept of ML and DL, elaborating on the foundational work of scholars Christian Janiesp, Patrick Zschecp & Kai Heinrich. We conclude that, Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence used for creating statistical models that enable systems to predict, analyse, and make decisions for

    specific problem statements. Deep learning, based on artificial neural networks, is used for analysing complex patterns and has extraordinary performance, surpassing human capabilities in areas like computer vision, recommendation systems, and autonomous vehicles. ML algorithms are used for learning tasks such as regression, classification, and ANNs. Artificial neural networks (ANN) are a shallow part of machine learning, designed for simple tasks inspired by biological neural networks. They are multilayered structures with specific tasks executed by each layer. Deep neuron networks, on the other hand, have hidden layer structures with diverse layers such as convolution, max- pooling, and dense, increasing model depth and complexity. DL is summarized into five distinct groups: convolutional neural networks (CNNs), recurrent neural networks (RNNs), autoencoders, and generative adversarial neural networks (GANs). CNNs are used for image processing, RNNs connection are establish to form direct cycle and preserve the state or memory of preceding inputs, and GANs produce new data samples that closely resemble training data. And it used for making cartoon characters. Along with the pros DL comes up with dome cons too as it required large amount of data and it can also cause the problem of overfitting it works smooth on train data but poor on unseen data.

    The aim of this literature review is to perform a comprehensive analysis use of ML in solid state material science, progressing from the base established by of scholars Jonathan Schmidt 1, Mário R. G. Marques 1, Silvana Botti2 and Miguel A. L. Marques. We conclude that, Machine learning has emerged as one of the most exciting tools in the field of material science in recent years. Its statistical methods have proven to greatly accelerate both fundamental and applied research. Currently, there is a surge of works that utilize machine learning in the study of solid-state systems. In this comprehensive overview, we delve into the latest research in this area. To begin, we introduce the principles, algorithms, descriptors, and databases of machine learning in materials science. Following that, we delve into various methodologies that utilize machine learning techniques to uncover the stable materials and forecast the crystal structure. Additionally, we examine various methods for replacing first principle techniques with machine learning in quantitative structure-property relationships. Active learning and surrogate-based optimization are also discussed as means to enhance the rational design process. We provide examples of their applications in materials science. Furthermore, we address the crucial aspects of interpretability and the valuable insights gained from machine learning models in this field. Lastly, we put forth potential solutions and future research directions to tackle the challenges faced in computational materials science. Similar to the industrial revolution, where machines surpassed human efficiency in mechanical tasks, machine learning is revolutionizing the identification of patterns and relationships between properties and features in materials science.

    This literature review seeks to provide a detailed interpretation of chapter one i.e., overview of Machine Learning, which is all about the different taxonomy of ML research and historical sketch of ML based models, extending the work that was originally done by of scholars Ryszard S.

    Michalski, Tom M. Mitchell & James G. Carbonell. The subject matter of machine learning encompasses the study and computer modeling of learning processes in their various manifestations. Currently, the field of machine learning is organized around three primary research focuses. The first focus is task-oriented studies, which involve the development and analysis of learning systems to improve performance in a predetermined set of tasks, also known as the engineering approach. The second focus is cognitive simulation, which entails investigating and simulating human learning processes using computers. Lastly, the third focus is theoretical analysis, which involves exploring the theoretical space of possible learning methods and algorithms, independent of their application domain. Another fundamental scientific objective of machine learning is to explore alternative learning mechanisms. This includes discovering different induction algorithms, understanding the scope and limitations of certain methods, determining the necessary information for the learner, addressing the issue of coping with imperfect training data, and creating general techniques that can be applied in various task domains.

    Through this literature review, a meticulous interpretation of machine learning algorithm that shows a great promise in solving problems of daily life, building upon the work that was initially completed by scholars Gopinath Rebala, Ajay Ravi & Sanjay Churiwala. Our analysis indicates that machine learning deals with the challenge of creating computers that can progress autonomously through experience. This field is currently one of the fastest-growing specialized areas, situated at the intersection of computer science and statistics, and at the core of artificial intelligence and data science. The recent progress in machine learning has been primarily driven by the development of new learning algorithms and theories, as well as the continuous surge in the availability of online data and affordable computation. The adoption of data-intensive machine learning techniques can be observed across various sectors such as science, technology, and business, leading to more evidence-based decision-making in fields like healthcare, manufacturing, education, financial modelling, law enforcement, and marketing.

    The main focus of this literature review is to provide a detailed examination and interpretation of the several issues in sectors of science and society which can be solved by the ML based models, expanding upon the work that was originally carried out by scholars Cynthia Rudin & Kiri L. Wagstaff. Our findings suggest that Machine Learning (ML) and data mining have been employed, and will continue to be employed, in various important domains that impact people's everyday lives. Nevertheless, it is not customary in numerous mainstream machine learning platforms to publish research with the primary objective of addressing a new real-world problem. The compilation of papers in this special issue offers an updated response to the question "what is machine learning good for?" with a focus on impact. Since machine learning primarily impacts the world at large through its application in various fields, rather than through innovative specialized algorithms or theories, factors beyond algorithms and theories can be (and often are) crucial for knowledge discovery. This understanding has been acknowledged for many years by

    numerous scientists and is reflected in the knowledge discovery frameworks of KDD and CRISP-DM (Frawley et al. 1992; Chapman et al. 2000) as well as by others who consider the machine learning element as just one part of a more comprehensive formalized system for knowledge discovery (Hand 1994; Brodley and Smyth 1997).

    The central objective of this literature review is to conduct a thorough investigation and analysis of different trends, perspectives and prospects of ML, elaborating on the work that was initially accomplished by scholar Dheeraj Yadav. We conclude that, Machine learning combines computer science and statistics to create self-improving computers. Advancements in algorithms, theories, and data availability have fuelled its growth. It is widely used in sectors like science, technology, and commerce, leading to data-driven decision-making in healthcare, manufacturing, education, finance, law enforcement, and advertising. The exponential growth concern in which ML-based algorithms operate is a key factor driving this expansion. Unlike conventional ML systems that consist of a single program running on a single system, ML-based systems are now commonly deployed in models with numerous chipsets, enabling better communication and parallelism. This trend has significantly contributed to the expansion of ML-based algorithms. The main aim is to limit time and space for ML-based systems, rather than prioritizing correctness. The system will find a central operating point that fulfils these needs.

    The key emphasis of this literature review is to deliver a comprehensive scrutiny and interpretation of the loop hole for the machine learning which can be filled in future, enhancing the work that was originally executed by scholar Zhi-Hua Zhou. Our assessment reveals that current machine learning techniques have made significant strides; nevertheless, there exist numerous drawbacks. Firstly, training a powerful model necessitates a substantial number of training examples, yet acquiring data, particularly labeled data, can be expensive or challenging in numerous real-world scenarios. Secondly, once a model is trained, it may struggle to perform effectively or even become obsolete if the environment undergoes changes, a common occurrence in practical tasks. Thirdly, trained models often function as black-boxes, whereas individuals typically seek to understand what the models have learned, especially in tasks where decision reliability is paramount and human judgment is crucial. In addition to the aforementioned deficiencies, several pertinent issues warrant attention. Initially, data sharing is essential in many current machine learning studies to transfer valuable information from one task to another. However, concerns regarding data privacy and proprietary rights often hinder public data sharing, which leads to making it difficult for individuals to base their learning tasks on others' results. Secondly, machine learning still appears somewhat mystical: Even with ample training data, most end users, aside from machine learning experts, struggle to develop robust models.


    From the literatures reviews given above, we conclude about the different machine learning algorithms and we explored numerous popular application domains that leverage machine learning techniques to emphasize their relevance in

    addressing diverse real-world challenges. We had understood how Machine Learning analyse the data and predict an outcome and how it result in reduces human efforts, an intelligence system can able to work like a human brain which can learn from past experiences, categorizes the data according to their similarities and dissimilarities. We have also covered the concept of big data in Machine Learning. We observe how Machine Learning takes up a drastic change in the field of material science, industrial domains, IoTs (sensors etc.). It also covers the concept of deep learning, which is the subset of machine learning which concentrates of training neural networks comprise of multiple layers. At last, it also concludes the future of Machine Learning, with the increasing researches on Machine Learning it definitely results in building a strong intelligence models or algorithms in future which reduces the manpower.
