A subset of artificial intelligence, machine learning uses computer algorithms to automatically improve a decision or function through experience. Machine learning involves computers learning from data to carry out tasks. A machine learning algorithm builds mathematical models to make decisions; these decisions are not directly programmed. Big data and data mining are related fields, dealing with data analysis. There are many applications for machine learning, a small sampling of which include:
In addition, machine learning is helping scientists discover new patterns and highlighting anomalies that likely humans would not detect.
Machine learning matters that require technical expertise typically involve intellectual property, data analysis, or cybersecurity. Litigation support by a machine learning expert witness could include a review of the technology, data analytics, document review, an expert report, depositions, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony in the courtroom.
