Machine Learning and Algorithms


In his book "On Intelligence", published in 2004, Jeff Hawkins defined intelligence as the ability to predict the future, for example, the weight of a glass we are going to lift or the reaction of others to our actions, based on patterns stored in the memory (the memory-prediction framework). This same principle is behind Machine Learning. Machine Learning is a discipline within the field of Artificial Intelligence which, by means of algorithms, provides computers with the ability to identify patterns from mass data in order to make predictions. This learning method allows computers to perform specific tasks autonomously, that is, without the need to be programmed.
