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”.

Remember ETP:

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.
