An Introduction to AI and Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are driving a ton of innovation in computing at the moment. AI is showing up in nearly every major technology, and seem to give our machines the impression that they are almost human, almost intelligent. But remember it’s called Artificial Intelligence for a reason – it’s artificial. While these technologies might seem mysterious and scary, they are like most things in technology – easy to understand if you have a basic idea of what’s going on.

This video aims to unpack the core idea behind Machine Learning – that if we can provide a machine with enough examples of something then it will eventually be able to recognise and draw conclusions for itself.
