    Technology Definition of the Week:

    Machine Learning

     An area of computer science and statistical modeling that allows a computer program to predict an outcome or make a decision without being explicitly programmed to do so.

    Machine learning, which forms the basis for artificial intelligence (AI), is closely tied to data analytics and data mining programming. Both machine learning and data mining applications use mathematical algorithms to search through data and look for patterns. However, instead of extracting data for human comprehension, as is the case in data mining applications, machine learning uses algorithms to detect patterns in data and adjust program actions accordingly.
