I’ve always been more of a visual learner myself, though I must admit I have not yet tried parsing data through formulas and algorithms to give a result. It could very well be the key I need to finally learn a foreign language.

Very well said. Descriptive, succinct, and accurate. I like it because it highlights exactly how similar machine learning is to actual learning, that is to say, not at all similar. In fact they are totally different things, which is good because the one (machine learning) is a term composed of two words that when combined in that order results in a logical contradiction and a thing which is logically impossible, a learning machine. Simply put, if a machine could learn it would no longer be a machine.

Also, to answer the question posed by the title of the piece. I do not exactly know but I do know one thing it is not, intelligent.
