Definition of Machine Learning

Machine learning, what is it?  Basically it is learning to do better in the future from what has been done in the past.  This is done through algorithms that make the computer learn to complete actions through automatic means.  In other words, the computer learns to do stuff on its own, not through getting help from people.  It’s a part of artificial intelligence, a sub-menu.

Examples of Machine Learning

  • Optical character recognition
  • Face detection
  • Spam filtering
  • Finding topics
  • Understanding spoken languages
  • Medical diagnosis
  • Customer segmentation
  • Detecting fraud
  • Predicting weather

Goals of Machine Learning

  1. Make general purpose algorithms
  2. Learning algorithms
  3. Find prediction rules easy for people to understand

Very interesting article on learning more about machine learning.
