BigDataFr recommends:Peter Norvig: How Computers Learn

« Peter Norvig talks about his long experience in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Computer scientists have developed complex programming languages and systems to allow us to describe, step-by-step how to solve problems such as keeping bank statements balanced. But there are other problems that we can’t articulate how to solve them: how do we recognize a person’s face, or translate a paragraph from German to English? We can’t describe how we do it, and so we can’t easily program a computer to do it, but we can train a computer to learn how to do it. This talk explains how computers learn from examples and what are the promises and limitations of these techniques. »
The talk starts at 10:56
