Is our machine learning?

Ars Technica Ars takes a dip into artificial intelligence: “In the first part of a new series, we look at matching the problem to the tool. Every day, some little piece of logic constructed by very specific bits of artificial intelligence technology makes decisions that affect how you experience the world. It could be the ads that get served up to you on social media or shopping sites, or the facial recognition that unlocks your phone, or the directions you take to get to wherever you’re going. These discreet, unseen decisions are being made largely by algorithms created by machine learning (ML), a segment of artificial intelligence technology that is trained to identify correlation between sets of data and their outcomes. We’ve been hearing in movies and TV for years that computers control the world, but we’ve finally reached the point where the machines are making real autonomous decisions about stuff. Welcome to the future, I guess…”
