An Overview of Machine Learning

  • Michael Paluszek

Machine learning is a field in computer science where existing 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. Machine learning is important in areas like facial recognition, spam filtering, and others where it is not feasible, or even possible, to write algorithms to perform a task.
