This is Google's dictionary on machine learning. Very interesting, with more than 100 entries, but clearly biased towards what Google thinks machine learning is. There is still big room for improvement, as this glossary is missing many important entries such as

- maximum likelihood
- Bayesian networks
- dimension reduction
- hierarchical modeling
- survival analysis
- Markov property
- cross-validation
- time series

Below are some of the interesting concepts listed in the Google ML glossary. You can check the full glossary (with definitions) here.
