Draft: What Humans Can Learn From Machine Learning

Human Learning differs from Machine Learning in important ways.

However, there are useful things we can take from ML

  • the alpha parameter
  • momentum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stochastic_gradient_descent#Momentum
  • optimality in the face of an impossibly large search space
  • generalize > memorize by using a testing set
  • epsilon exhaustion and Probably Approximately Correct learning
  • naive bayes - how can it be right
    • So you just need to be directionally correct.
  • random restart hill climbing
    • if theres a v specific point that is superbly better than others, you're in a bad world
  • simulated annealing - hot and cold
  • eager learning vs lazy learning
