Many observers specifically look for the “peak of inflated expectations” to see which technologies have hit their high point when it comes to media saturation, but still need several years before reaching their true potential. While there are many well-known categories on this year’s list, including 3-D printing, virtual reality and wearables, they’re joined by one that comes with a bit more mystery—machine learning. For people in technology, the definition of machine learning is relatively simple. Machine learning is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly…
