Introduction to Machine Learning
January 13(!), 2004
A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some class of tasks T and performance measure P, if its performance at tasks in T, as measured by P, improves with experience.
Learning: improving with experience at some task
Example: Learn to play checkers:
V(b1)= mini V(bi)
m6 : bb6
m5 : bb5
m4 : bb4
Black wins: V(b)=-100
Blue wins: V(b)=100
Need to decide upon topic in four-six weeks from today.
