How to Train a Computer


“Sit, Buddy! Sit, sit, sit! Good Boy.

Here you go, there’s your treat.”

That’s familiar. Isn’t it? We have all very often trained our dogs this way. Well, it might have taken a good few of us a month or so to actually get there. 

But the point is, dogs do finally learn. And they learn by experience.

Training machines or computers ain’t much different. Except they don’t salivate at the sight of treats.

But computers or machines in general also learn by experience. 

In the class, we discuss how training a computer works in detail.
