After all, the term Machine Learning was coined based on the way the human (or animal) brain learns, meaning that somehow, machines could also benefit from a similar kind of learning.
But human beings, successful ones for sure, know how to un-learn. In my case, while I was always fascinated by mathematics since my very early years, the school system's training (as in training an algorithm in ML) failed on me. It failed not because I did not succeed at school (I… Continue
