Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has attracted more and more attention due to its remarkable effects on treating diseases, and Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) is an important partition of TCM, rich in natural active ingredients. Researchers are trying multiple analytical methods to dig out more valuable information about CHM and reveal the principle of TCM. Machine learning is playing an important role in the studies. Knowledge discovery of CHM using machine learning mainly includes quality control of CHM, network pharmacology in CHM, and medical prescriptions composed by CHM, aiming to understand TCM better, provide more efficiency methods in the production of CHM and find novel treatment of disease not curable nowadays. In this paper, we summarized the basic idea of frequently used classification and clustering machine learning algorithms, introduced pre-processing algorithms commonly used to simplify and accelerate machine learning procedure, presented current status of machine learning algorithms’ applications in knowledge discovery of CHM, discussed challenges and future trends of machine learning’s application in CHM. It is believed that the paper provides a valuable insight for the starters trying to apply machine learning in the study of CHM and catch up the recent status of related researches.
