Machine Learning – and its recent developments in Deep Learning – is a wide branch of Artificial Intelligence, with countless applications.

This brief introduction tries to concisely describe its basic concepts – with no claim of completeness.

This work was inspired by the beautiful book "Java Deep Learning Essentials" (https://www.packtpub.com/big-data-and-business-intelligence/java-deep-learning-essentials) by Yusuke Sugomori - that includes further topics and details, in addition to mathematical descriptions and source code - as well as by Wikipedia.
