# Common Machine Learning Models

Last updated: August 19, 2020

## Types of modeling tasks

Based on Michael J. Garbade’s Medium post:

Supervised learning | Unsupervised learning | |
---|---|---|

Categorical predictors |
Classification | Clustering |

Continuous predictors |
Regression | Density estimation, dimension reduction |

## Common types of models

- Classification
- Clustering
- Regression
- Density estimation
^{1} - Dimensional reduction

- In other words, estimate a probability density function for a random variable
