Interview with Tom Mitchell

Tom Mitchell is the first Chair of Department of the first Machine Learning Department in the World, based at Carnegie Mellon. The Videolectures.Net team spoke to him in Pittsburgh at CMU where we discussed about how he started the department, what was the response of the broader community and its past, present and future. "The university said you can only have a department if you have a discipline that is going to be here in one hundred years otherwise you can not have a department."
