What is Feature Scaling in Machine Learning | Normalization vs Standardization

Let me start with simple question. Can we compare Mango and Apple? Both have different features in terms of tastes, sweetness, health benefits etc. So comparison can be performed between similar entities else it will be biased. Same logic applies to Machine Learning as well. Feature Scaling in Machine Learning brings features to the same scale before we apply any comparison or model building. Normalization and Standardization are the two frequently used techniques of Feature Scaling in Machine Learning.
