The State of Enterprise Machine Learning

For a topic that generates so much interest, it is surprisingly difficult to find a concise definition of machine learning that satisfies everyone. Complicating things further is the fact that much of machine learning, at least in terms of its enterprise value, looks somewhat like existing analytics and business intelligence tools.

To set the course for this three-part series that puts the scope of machine learning into enterprise context, we define machine learning as software that extracts high-value knowledge from data with little or no human supervision. Academics who work in formal machine learning theory may object to a definition that limits machine learning to software.
