GNU Octave is an open source programming language quite similar to Matlab. Octave helps you do scientific computations by enabling you to express things like matrix computations in a clear and concise manner.

GNU Octave is well suited for the sub discipline of artificial intelligence called machine learning. In this discipline a lot of computations can be expressed using matrices and vectors, which makes GNU Octave a great tool choice. Machine learning is also a lot about optimizing (minimizing) error functions, which also makes GNU Octave a great choice since it makes good optimization libraries available.

Some example application areas of GNU Octave are:
