The scientific discipline of Machine Learning focuses on developing algorithms to find patterns or make predictions from empirical data. It is a classical sub-discipline within Artificial Intelligence (AI). The discipline is increasingly used by many professions and industries to optimize processes and implement adaptive systems. The course places machine learning in its context within AI and gives an introduction to the most important core techniques such as decision tree based inductive learning, inductive logic programming, reinforcement learning and deep learning through decision trees.
