Machine Learning and decision making – Part 1

Marko Balabanovic is Chief Technology Officer at the Digital Catapult In the first of a two part blog post, Marko Balabanovic, Chief Technology Officer, at the Digital Catapult writes about Machine Learning (ML) and the challenges around systems that make decisions. We recently participated in the The Royal Society’s investigation of machine learning. In this two part post I’ll give a little background to where machine learning is today, but then claim that we have a bigger set of challenges around systems that make decisions, regardless of whether they use machine learning algorithms or more conventional software. Machine learning grew from the broader field of Artificial Intelligence, and gradually became a significant discipline in its own right. Machine Learning (ML) algorithms “learn” from examples and improve from experience, rather than…
