Machine learning (ML) is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) field of study that allows computers to learn from existing data without being explicitly programmed. In recent years, the application of ML in wide range of industries has grown rapidly. The increase in machine computing capabilities over the past decades has provided the possibility to perform advanced analyses such as ML on big data. ML can be effectively used in geotechnical engineering applications, where uncertainty is part of the nature, to develop robust predictive models for soil and foundation engineering parameters/behaviours. Then geotechnical design parameters are not always directly measured from laboratory and in-situ te..
