I just started using machine learning and was wondering if anybody have cool ideas for a Startup project, I've seen this website Treato and was amazed by it. Thanks.
First of all, I would get acquainted with some core concepts of Machine Learning before building websites:
- Common algorithms, differences between them (Naive Bayes, KMeans, Regression, Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees, you name it...)
- Supervised vs. unsupervised
- Features and feature selection
- Classification evaluation (precision, recall, accuracy)
Machine learning is a huge field which is applied in many different areas. I don't know how proficient you are at this stage, but I would certainly play around with these things first in order to get a solid understanding of what you're dealing with. After that, the options are virtually limitless in a world of Big Data (forgive me for using the annoying buzz-word). What is truly valuable is someone knows how to do machine-learning rather than what (because there's enough to go about).
