What is Machine Learning? | Alumni lunch and learn webinar

We use machine learning every day, whether directly or indirectly. Smartphones and apps use it. Amazon uses it. But what does the term “machine learning” actually mean?

In the fourth of the Lunch & Learn webinars with PACCAR-Award winners, Associate Professor Thomas Gilbert looked at how the machine learning went from the depth of computer science research labs to ubiquitous in everyday conversation. In his presentation, Gilbert explained whether the machine is truly learning and showed where such algorithms make our lives easier.
