Machine learning, or the study of algorithms that can learn and act, allows automated decision-making that is both scalable and free of human error. It is becoming increasingly apparent that many tasks and even jobs traditionally done by humans can be carried out in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost by machines. Dr Michael Osborne, Associate Professor in Machine Learning, and Co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment, will look at current advances in machine learning, and consider the applications these could have on future technologies.
