Machine Learning Goes Mainstream

Machine learning is moving into the mainstream thanks to advances in processing power, deep learning, and Big Data. Computers generally don’t take sick days or pass on germs, most of the time they don’t argue or answer back and they never have hangovers or wake up in a bad mood.  In theory that could make them the perfect digital co-worker. But there is a problem. Unlike the human brain, computers have historically suffered from a key limitation – they must follow the rules laid down by programmers. If it is not in the code, it does not compute. Now however, advances in processing power, Big Data, and a technique called Machine Learning, is changing all that. Machine Learning was first defined in 1959 by Arthur Samuel as a, “Field of…
