What is Machine Learning?
- The field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.--Arthur Samuel
A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some class of tasks T and performance measure P, if its performance at tasks in T, as measured by P, improves with experience E.--Tom Mitchell
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
