Computing Research that Changed the World
For a long time people believed that computers could do only what they were programmed to do. We now have many examples where computers can learn to predict and learn to improve their predictions.
Computer learning - called Machine Learning (ML) by computer scientists - can help improve all our lives through practical applications such as speech understanding, fraud detection, intrusion detection, image search, automated surveillance for suspicious actions, and many more. There are many important applications of Machine Learning.
