"Intel researchers have released open source software that is meant to help developers create computers that can 'learn' from their experience, using data to proactively improve accuracy and ease of use. The announcement came at the opening of the Neural Information Processing Systems Conference (NIPS2003) earlier this week.

"Intel says its Probabilistic Networks Library (PNL) software and Open Source Machine Learning Library (OpenML) will enable researchers to develop machine learning applications that can estimate the likelihood that something will happen by calculating how often it occurred in the past. According to Intel, the software can be used to enhance a wide variety of interactive and industrial computer applications--everything from combing through huge databases of gene studies, to spotting promising proteins for new drugs, to email systems that model a person's behavior to decide how best to manage newly arriving messages on its own..."
