The etymology of learning is from the Old English leornung "study, action of acquiring knowledge," verbal noun from leornian (see learn). Meaning "knowledge acquired by systematic study, extensive literary and scientific culture" is from mid-14c. Machines acquire knowledge also. Machine learning sounds a little apocalyptical doesn't it? Machines have been helping humans for hundreds of years so why can't the computer "machine" also learn and help humans realize greater potential. Machine learning (ML) is a method of data collection that automates analytical model building.
There are a vast array of industries using machine learning; financial, government, healthcare, retail, and transportation. The companies in these industries are using machine learning to automate decision making, reduce customer churn, prevent fraud, and personalize data to enable better buying decisions. Humans will always be involved with machine learning because humans program computers and can unplug computers. Embrace machine learning and move to the next level.
