Semantic technology approach in machine learning is an emerging technique to solve the problems in the machine learning. Semantic technology has been the improvised from decades according to the human needs and industrial demands. This new era is all about teaching a machine to learn on its own and to make it understand the concept and the purpose for what it is used, using algorithms. This paper, condenses the work of semantic technology approach in machine learning and its idea put forward. The introduction details with brief explanation followed by description of the semantic technology and machine learning, important role. The literature survey contains summarized view of the papers with a graph plotted on the analysis of paper throughout the decade; a table with summary of the related works and concluded with review analysis. © 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
