Issues in Machine Learning
•What learning algorithms to be used?
•How much training data is sufficient?
•When and how prior knowledge can guide the learning process?
•What is the best strategy for choosing a next training experience?
•What is the best way to reduce the learning task to one or more
function approximation problems?
•How can the learner automatically alter its representation to
improve its learning ability?
