Detailed Description

The Machine Learning Library (MLL) is a set of classes and functions for statistical classification, regression, and clustering of data.

Most of the classification and regression algorithms are implemented as C++ classes. As the algorithms have different sets of features (like an ability to handle missing measurements or categorical input variables), there is a little common ground between the classes. This common ground is defined by the class cv::ml::StatModel that all the other ML classes are derived from.

See detailed overview here: Machine Learning Overview.
