Machine Learning: the Basics. Machine learning is the art of giving a computer data, and having it learn trends from that data and then make predictions based on new data.What is the objective of machine learning?
Machine learning is sort of more art than science currently. Objective functions can vary deeply depending on the problem at hand, thus to choose the right one requires understanding of the problem. Some objective functions are robust but harder to optimize whereas some are easy to optimize but may not necessarily work well.
