Machine Learning is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computer programs with the ability to learn, grow and change when exposed to new data, without being explicitly programmed. The process of Machine Learning is similar to that of data mining. Both systems search through data to look for patterns. However, instead of extracting data for human comprehension — as is the case in data mining applications — machine learning uses that data to improve the program’s own understanding. Machine Learning programs detect patterns in data and adjust program actions accordingly. Here, we present 20 free eBooks on Machine Learning, which will guide you to understand more about Machine Learning.
