Machine learning is about intelligent forgetting
Machine Learning is becoming an important tool across all sciences.
We are using it to classify, build clusters, make rules and decisions.
But what is Machine Learning really about? What is the engine of
We will argue that the key component is the capacity of forgetting.
To defend this thesis we will consider the points of view of cognitive
science, of arts, but also of Machine Learning itself and show how the
forgetting component is essential in many famous algorithms.
