Learning “Machine Learning”

Recently I read an interesting article by Yaser S. Abu-Mostafa in the Scientific American about Machine Learning. Basically he is promoting the field of machine learning as a method to extract information from huge databases. He also mentions that he offers a free online course. Hence, I started the course two weeks ago. The course is still pretty basic only dealing with linear models. The next weeks should become more interesting as we dive into the theory. Hopefully, in a few weeks I can build my own machine learning tools (besides the linear programs).
