We hear a lot about machine learning these days. But most of us have no idea how machines learn. Mea culpa!
Indeed, many of us do not know ho we learn. Errr …. no comment.
There is a method to turning data points into learning. And if you are curious, here it is! Or at least the first stage of it.
BTW, are you concerned that we do not know how advanced neural networks function? That AI may develop learning that humans cannot follow? Al Wenger says “Stay cool, honey bunny!” That is true of humans too. And we can learn how to cope with the problem.
It has to do with coping with failure modes.
