  • What is machine learning?

  • You probably use it dozens of times a day without even knowing it.

  • Each time you do a web search on Google or Bing, that works so well

  • because their machine learning software has figured out how to rank what pages.

  • When Facebook or Apple's photo application recognizes your friends in your pictures,

  • that's also machine learning.

  • Each time you read your email and

  • a spam filter saves you from having to wade through tons of spam, again,

  • that's because your computer has learned to distinguish spam from non-spam email.

  • So, that's machine learning.

  • is a science of getting computers to learn without being explicitly programmed.

  • One of the research projects that I'm working on is getting robots to tidy

  • up the house.

  • How do you go about doing that?

  • Well what you can do is have the robot watch you demonstrate the task and

  • learn from that.

  • The robot can then watch what objects you pick up and where to put them and

  • try to do the same thing even when you aren't there.

  • For me, one of the reasons I'm excited about this is the AI, or

  • artificial intelligence problem.

  • Building truly intelligent machines,

  • we can do just about anything that you or I can do.

  • Many scientists think the best way to make progress on this is through learning

  • algorithms called neural networks, which mimic how the human brain works, and

  • I'll teach you about that, too.

  • In this class, you learn about machine learning and

  • get to implement them yourself.

  • I hope you sign up on our website and join us.
