Learning Curves in Machine Learning
A learning curve shows a measure of predictive performance on a given domain as a function of some measure of varying amounts of learning effort. The most common form of learning curves in the general field of machine learning shows predictive accuracy on the test examples as a function of the number of training examples as in Fig. 1.
