  Machine Learning
The notes concentrate on the important ideas in machine learning---it is neither a handbook of practice nor a compendium of theoretical proofs.
Machine learning of grammars finds a variety of applications in syntactic pattern recognition, adaptive intelligent agents, diagnosis, computational biology, systems modelling, prediction, natural language acquisition, data mining and knowledge discovery.
Machine Learning is a scientific field addressing the question 'How can we program systems to automatically learn and to improve with experience?' We study learning from many kinds of experience, such as learning to predict which medical patients will respond to which treatments, by analyzing experience captured in databases of online medical records.

  First World War.com - Weapons of War - Machine Guns
Machine guns of all armies were largely of the heavy variety and decidedly ill-suited to portability for use by rapidly advancing infantry troops.
As the war developed machine guns were adapted for use on tanks on broken ground, particularly on the Western Front (where the majority of machine guns were deployed).
Light machine guns were adopted too for incorporation into aircraft from 1915 onwards, for example the Vickers, particularly with the German adoption of interrupter equipment, which enabled the pilot to fire the gun through the aircraft's propeller blades.

  Machine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A machine is any mechanical or organic device that transmits or modifies energy to perform or assist in the performance of tasks.
The mechanical advantage of a simple machine is the ratio between the force it exerts on the load and the input force applied.
Machines used to transform heat or other energy into mechanical energy are known as engines.

 Machine - MSN Encarta
Machines can make a tough job seem easier by enabling a person to apply less force or to apply force in a direction that is easier to manipulate.
Some common examples of simple machines are the shovel (a form of lever), the pulley at the top of a flagpole, the steering wheel of an automobile (a form of wheel and axle), and the wheelchair ramp (a form of inclined plane).
Because simple machines increase mechanical advantage by increasing the distance over which the effort is applied, one way to compute theoretical mechanical advantage is to divide the distance the effort is applied by the distance the load actually travels.

 sewing machine - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Two types of machines, the lockstitch and the chain-stitch, operate on the same principle; an eye-pointed needle, raised and lowered at great speed, pierces the material lying on a steel plate, casting a loop of thread on the underside of the seam.
In the lockstitch machine a second thread, fed from a shuttle under the plate, passes through the loop and is interlocked with the upper thread as it is drawn tightly up by the rising needle.
In the chain-stitch machine, which uses a single thread, the loop is held under the seam while the needle rises, the cloth is fed forward, and the needle descends again, engaging the loop and drawing it flat under the cloth.

 Turing Machines (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The action of a Turing machine is determined completely by (1) the current state of the machine (2) the symbol in the cell currently being scanned by the head and (3) a table of transition rules, which serve as the “program” for the machine.
The complete state of a Turing machine at any point during a computation may be described by the name of the state that the machine is in, the symbols on the tape, and the cell that is currently being scanned.
The action of this machine is to repeatedly change one of the original ones into an A, and then write a new ‘1’ to the right of all remaining ‘1’ on the tape, after leaving a zero between the original block and the copy.

 Welcome to The American Presidency
With the lever voting machine, the mechanical counters that record the action of the levers (votes) must be inspected and set at 000 before the polls open; then the machine adds the votes as they are cast.
These devices, or apparatuses, are not true voting machines because they merely hold a paper ballot and enable the voter to record his or her choices by means of a punch (pointed object) applied to the card's surface at the spot indicated for casting a vote.
Although there are admitted economies in the use of the voting machine over the paper ballot, there are expenses in connection with the machine in addition to the initial cost: storage, insurance, upkeep, replacement, and the education of election officials and voters.

 Machine
Machine was formed in New York in 1977, when the disco-era was in full swing and most RandB, disco, and funk lyrics were escapist in nature.

Machine wasn't a big seller, but those who did acquire the album agreed that the band had enormous potential.
