Machine learning is fascinating. In fact, it might be one of the most interesting fields of knowledge out there today and examples of industries that have been transformed by it abound. From music to financial services, machine learning is here to stay.

But fascinating concepts can sometimes become enshrouded as they become “buzzwords”. At DataVisor, we are very passionate about artificial intelligence and machine learning and decided to publish this handbook to explain in simple and clear terms what “supervised machine learning” and “unsupervised machine learning” are and which one is better to protect your business from fraud.
