Machine learning refers to the ability of a machine to change its behaviour based on the accumulation of new data or ‘experience.’ This includes a range of different learning techniques, such as supervised, unsupervised and deep learning. Algorithms associated with these techniques enable systems to:

  • Autonomously control machines like driverless cars
  • Make predictions about things like consumer preferences
  • Support health care professionals in clinical decision-making by incorporating previous data on similar diagnoses, medication history, practices and guidelines
