A subset of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), machine learning is the process in which machines are allowed to improve and grow through experience rather than programming.
Exceptionally advanced machines can test themselves against various scenarios and process massive quantities of data without instruction on how to do so.
These kinds of data could be anything from sorting millions of transactions to finding common patterns to strategies for wiping out the human race.
Businesses can use machine learning to make accurate forecasts from large data sets and be confident in their analysis and predictions, growing with their computers.
