Machine Learning(ML), when I heard this term a decade ago, I felt it's absurd, it liked a game for having fun. 

After a decade, the technology of ML has been improved a lot. It likes a baby who has already grown up to be a semi-mature teenager. This teenager can contribute adults to make a better decision than ever.

Since a Machine(computer system) has the capacities of learning from data, identifying patterns and making basic decisions, ML can be applied in various fields. Google uses ML to optimize the search results for end users. Netflix and Youtube utilizes ML to suggest videos based on users' preferences. Amazon puts Ai, Machine Learning and Face Recognition altogether, to build its retail shop- Amazon Go.

Machine Learning can also be used to shape the future of health care.

"wherever a human makes an important decision, machine learning is being discussed, and is increasingly being used to improve those decisions," says Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, chief information officer for Michigan Medicine.

What Dr. Andrew wants to do is, enrich their ability for predicting what will happen using known data points and unknown ones which the machine does.

Machine Learning can recognise which patients may have potentially life-threatening conditions, such as sepsis, , the body’s response to infection, and advise medical staff to test their blood.

It has predicted abdominal aneurysms based on genetic abnormalities seen on whole genome sequencing with 69 percent accuracy. Abdominal aneurysms are almost always undetected until fatal — or, detected accidentally during a scan for some other ailment.  http://www.hourdetroit.com/Hour-Detroit/January-2019/Machine-Learning/

Undoubtedly, the health care professionals make a significant progress with Machine Learning, helps to save a certain amount of patients' lives. I just concern the 69 percent accuracy of prediction that is not high enough.

If you would like to study how Ai and Machine Learning work, the following books are good for you to grasp the basic concept:



1. Artificial Intelligence: 101 Things You Must Know Today About Our Future (kindle edition)

2. Architects of Intelligence : The truth about AI from the people building it (printed)

3. Machine Learning For Absolute Beginners: A Plain English Introduction (Second Edition) (Machine Learning For Beginners Book 1) (kindle edition)

4. Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow(printed)

Description:Since I was a kid. I started to find my way to escape from reality. Initially, I escaped by watching cartoons on T.V. Until I was 10, I liked watching movies more. I found both of them could not fully satisfy me for some reasons, so, I tried to read novels. Once I was caught by the magic of novels, I couldn’t rip out of reading.
