machine learning

A major component of artificial intelligence (AI). Machine learning software, which is mostly implemented using a "neural network" architecture, keeps modifying its own algorithms in the training stages in order to become more intelligent and improve future results. Machine learning (ML) is used to enhance pattern recognition (face, handwriting, voice, etc.) in many areas, including search engines, medical diagnosis, ad serving, spam filtering and sales forecasting. Deep learning is a more elaborate form of machine learning, which uses more layers of recognition to discern a pattern. See neural network and deep learning.

Unlike the static logic (if this - do that) in regular programs, machine learning continues to refine its logic over time and with enough samples so that the next operation is more effective than the last. Today's virtual assistants are often a combination of machine learning and "handcrafting," the latter providing predefined frameworks for responses. See AI and computer vision.


The Hierarchy
Machine learning (ML) is a subset of AI, and deep learning is a more elaborate form of ML.

By contrast, machine learning algorithms can take in immense amounts of information and sift them for patterns, and their conclusions can be back-traced to identify their source.
These days Chakravorty spends a lot of time explaining how deep learning algorithms can be applied to finance. (https://www.qplum.co/documents/evolution-of-quant-trading) We have seen an evolution  from trend following in the 1980s, to more complex statistical arbitrage in the 90's, which was followed by machine learning and HFT coming to the fore around 2005.
Furthermore, while under Singhal, Google's Search algorithms were primarily based on rules determined by humans, under Giannandrea, it may be driven by decisions made by machine learning algorithms, an Artificial Intelligence.

The paper is just the most recent in a career that explores the widespread applications of deep learning algorithms for many applications, which include biomedical ECG classification, malware detection, and health activity monitoring.
Also, it is simple to find examples that are easily classified by humans but misclassified by deep learning algorithms. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that a small but visually imperceptible change to a correctly classified image will result in the misclassification of the image.
