The Computer and Mind

  1. Dataset: A dataset will contain thousands of images of a face or object that you want a computer to recognize for you.
  2. Data model: Once the data has been created you need to make the computer learn and understand it. The computer will interpret the data before predicting it. This requires a model which helps in this process.
  3. Data training: The next step is to train the machine with the dataset and ask it for output when a similar photograph is encountered.
