Download Lifelong Machine Learning By Zhiyuan Chen and Bing Liu PDF book free online – From Lifelong Machine Learning By Zhiyuan Chen and Bing Liu PDF: This book is an introduction to an advanced Machine Learning paradigm that continuously learns by accumulating past knowledge that it then uses in future learning and problem-solving. In contrast, the current dominant machine learning paradigm learns in isolation: given a training dataset, it runs a machine learning algorithm on the dataset to produce a model that is then used in its intended application.
It makes no attempt to retain the learned knowledge and use it in subsequent learning. Unlike this isolated system, humans learn effectively with only a few examples precisely because our learning is very knowledge-driven: the knowledge learned in the past helps us learn new things with little data or effort. Lifelong learning aims to emulate this capability, because without it, an AI system cannot be considered truly intelligent.
