By now anyone who reads virtually any trade magazine has been hearing incessantly about how machine learning is going to transform their industry in profound ways. Marketers will be able to read potential customers' minds, farms will produce unprecedented yields, doctors will be able to stem diseases before they begin to form. And of course, we've all heard how machine learning will eventually take our jobs. It may very well be said of machine learning that there never have been so many wild predictions made about something which the majority of the public knows so little.
