What is Machine Learning?

How would you explain what Machine Learning is to a newbie, perhaps from the perspective of an Elixir user? :smiley:

Please note the aim of threads like this is for you to explain things in your own words. Please see this thread for details :slight_smile: (videos/links to further reading are also welcome though!)

Fancy math techniques to infer generalized patterns from specific examples.

(tongue in cheekโ€ฆkind of :P):
In the workplace it means focusing on being good at predicting examples you already know, reporting success and collecting $$$.
