Predictive analytics / machine learning / artificial intelligence is a hot topic – what’s it about? Using algorithms to help make better decisions has been the “next big thing in analytics” for over 25 years.

It appears that terms like Data Mining, Predictive Analytics, and Advanced Analytics are considered too geeky or old for industry marketers and headline writers. The term Cognitive Computing seemed to be poised to win, but IBM’s strong association with the term may have backfired – journalists and analysts want to use language that is independent of any particular company.
