                         Supervise ML                             Unsupervised ML

  1. Applied for labeled data .                          1. Applied for unlabeled data.
  2. Can make predictions from past data.      2. Can be used to draw some hidden patterns                                                                                                                                                    from the predictor variables.
  3. ex:-Linear Regression,Random Forest.    3. Ex:- K-Means,correlation matrix,Hierarchical clustering.
  4. Uses Trained Data                                    4. Uses entire data Number of classes are known.                 
  5. Number of classes are known.                  5. Number of classes are unknown.
