A nice write-up in Georgia Tech’s Research Horizons Magazine about ML@GT
Machine learning has been around for decades, but the advent of big data and more powerful computers has increased its impact significantly — moving machine learning beyond pattern recognition and natural language processing into a broad array of scientific disciplines. A subcategory of artificial intelligence, machine learning deals with the construction of algorithms that enable computers to learn from and react to data rather than following explicitly programmed instructions. “Machine-learning algorithms build a model based on inputs and then use that model to make other hypotheses, predictions, or decisions,” explained Irfan Essa, professor and associate dean in Georgia Tech’s College of Computing who also directs the Institute’s Center for Machine Learning.
