A very high-level overview of machine learning technology

Machine learning mimicking human intelligence is a subfield of AI—a field of computer science concerned with creating systems. Software engineering is another field in computer science. Generally, we can label Python programming as a type of software engineering. Machine learning is also closely related to linear algebra, probability theory, statistics, and mathematical optimization. We usually build machine learning models based on statistics, probability theory, and linear algebra, then optimize the models using mathematical optimization. The majority of you reading this book should have a good, or at least sufficient, command of Python programming. Those who aren't feeling confident ...
