Machine ‘Unlearning’ Technique Wipes Out Unwanted Data Quickly and Completely

Machine learning systems are everywhere. Computer software in these machines predicts the weather, forecasts earthquakes, provides recommendations based on the books and movies we like and, even, applies the brakes on our cars when we are not paying attention. To do this, computer systems are programmed to find predictive relationships calculated from the massive amounts of data we supply to them. Machine learning systems use advanced algorithms — a set of rules for solving math problems — to identify these predictive relationships using “training data.” This data is then used to construct the models and features within a system that enables it to correctly predict your desire to read the latest best-seller, or the likelihood of rain next week. This intricate learning process means that a piece of raw data…
