What is Machine Learning
Tom Mitchell in 1998 provided a modern definition: “A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some tasks T and some performance measure P, if its performance on T, as measured by P, improves with experience E”.
Learn from Experience E in doing the task T measured by improvement in performance P
Example of playing checkers
- E: the experience of playing many games of checkers
- T: the task of playing checkers
- P: the probability that the program will win the next game.
