That sounds cool, but what exactly does “Machine Learning” mean? From 1959: Machine Learning — a “Field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”.

Snowulf returns from Hiatus, now totally unscheduled

Of course, I’ve missed our Tuesday schedule for the last few weeks and realized that the schedule was now an impediment to posting.
