Machine learning — an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that allows systems to learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.
In 1952, the term “machine learning” was first used. Almost 70 years later, we are using machine learning on a daily basis: Face and Touch ID, Siri, Alexa, Uber, and even Computer-Aided Detection. For example, CAD software can spot 52% of breast cancer cells, a year before patients are diagnosed. What is machine learning technology, and what are its application areas? Let’s get all these straightened out.
