So we’ve talked a lot in this series about how computers fetch and display data, but how do they make decisions on this data? From spam filters and self-driving cars, to cutting edge medical diagnosis and real-time language translation, there has been an increasing need for our computers to learn from data and apply that knowledge to make predictions and decisions. This is the heart of machine learning which sits inside the more ambitious goal of artificial intelligence. We may be a long way from self-aware computers that think just like us, but with advancements in deep learning and artificial neural networks our computers are becoming more powerful than ever.

After this video I became a strong AI can beat alpha go.

bill Niko says:

Every neuron connect to every neuron with different weight .

bill Niko says:

Hey do you have book , i love your series

Dull Bananas says:

"BSOD" Course

Ramya Ranjan says:

She is such a good teacher , never knew Machine leaening and AI could be this interesting.

David Huss says:

7:39 did you mean to say "iterations"?

Cody Gillespie says:

Fantastic video

Global Digital Direct Subsidiarity Democracy says:

And human said: Let there be god.

Dav Vez says:

gonna try to create artificial intelligence using a geometric language in many dimension where the number of angle is our 2d equivalent of that language allowing higher and more complex coding and maybe even self aware artificial intelligence

Duc D says:

I learned so much in 12 mins
thank you so much!

Amaroq Starwind says:

The graph on 2:30 actually looks like a moth.

VideoSiteAccess says:

This was GOOD!

Dragoon77 says:

Arthur from The Tick at 3:33 ?

Jadwiga Buczyk says:

I don’t like your accent.

ralph diaz says:

Hello crash course great vids.
Make some conceptual understanding videos on Multivariate calculus, like the ones made by 3blue1brown YouTube channel.
Great job Carrie Ann..

Pooja Mahesha says:

Thanks for the intelligently designed graphics that pops at times.. They were so useful .. 🙂

Chris Sabre says:

No , computers dont and wont have intelligence, that takes comprehension, they have and use predictability based on gathered data,

Akshay Dhande says:

Thank you, for thanking gamers for demanding higher frame rates. I knew we would fit in somewhere 🙂

Jonas Bergqvist says:

Super good! Thanks alot!

3rdman says:

These are just really basic things that engineers have been doing for decades using MatLab. Really there is nothing new in these "new fields" called "machine-learning" and "data science". Just somewhat larger data-sets, somewhat faster machines, and a few new softwares that makes the job easier (mainly in the business domain), and a whole new mass of people who are called "data-scientists" or "data-analysts" or whatever.
Also I don't understand why this is called "artificial intelligence". These optimisation works fundamentally and utterly have nothing to do with what people define as "artificial intelligence", or whatever the paranoid ideas that people have about machines taking over the world or whatever.

A robot walks into a bar.
Robot ; " Hey bartender , I'll have a beer please."
Bartender: " We don't serve your type in here.
Robot: " No, but someday you will."

Randall Ledbetter says:

At 2:30 my eyeballs rolled back in my head and I collapsed, falling backward out of my chair due to total confusion and non understanding of said material. Takes me back to my school days.
