Case study

One of the fields in which Python is the most popular these days is data science. Let's implement a basic machine learning algorithm! Machine learning is a huge topic, but the general idea is to make predictions or classifications about future data by using knowledge gained from past data. Uses of such algorithms abound, and data scientists are finding new ways to apply machine learning every day. Some important machine learning applications include computer vision (such as image classification or facial recognition), product recommendation, identifying spam, and speech recognition. We'll look at a simpler problem: given an RGB color definition, what name would humans identify that color as?

There are more than 16 million colors in the ...
