An Overview of Machine Learning

  • Michael Paluszek

Machine learning is a field in computer science where data are used to predict, or respond to, future data. It is closely related to the fields of pattern recognition, computational statistics, and artificial intelligence. The data may be historical or updated in real-time. Machine learning is important in areas such as facial recognition, spam filtering, and other areas where it is not feasible, or even possible, to write algorithms to perform a task.
