"'Machine learning is a branch of computer science where, rather than computers being programmed to do a difficult task, computers learn automatically from examples,' Baldi explained. 'It's very difficult to write from scratch a program that can recognize elephants in images – or Higgs bosons in collider data. But we can provide to the computer many examples of images with and without elephants, or accelerator data with and without Higgs bosons, and let the computer learn automatically from these examples.'"
