Machine Learning and Knowledge Extraction (MAKE) is an inter-disciplinary, cross-domain, peer-reviewed, scholarly open access journal to provide a platform to support the international machine learning community. It publishes original research articles, reviews, tutorials, research ideas, short notes and Special Issues that focus on machine learning and applications. Papers which deal with fundamental research questions to help reach a level of useable computational intelligence are very welcome.

Machine learning deals with understanding intelligence to design algorithms that can learn from data, gain knowledge from experience and improve their learning behaviour over time. The challenge is to extract relevant structural and/or temporal patterns (“knowledge”) from data, which is often hidden in high dimensional spaces,  thus not accessible to humans. Many application
domains, e.g., smart health, smart factory, etc. affect our daily life, e.g., recommender systems, speech recognition, autonomous driving, etc. The grand challenge is to understand the context in the real-world under uncertainty. Probabilistic inference can be of
great help here as the inverse probability allows to learn from data, to infer unknowns, and to make predictions to support decision making.

NOTE: To support the training of a new kind of machine learning graduates, the journal accepts peer-reviewed high-end tutorial papers, similar as the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (SCI IF=9.654 !) is doing:
