"Is our machines learning ?"

This is, of course, a question that is rarely asked, except by certain people, and then only with respect to children.

In any case, the answer, so far, appears to be "yes, they is". I'm referring to my machine learning class -- not only are we being asked to work with real data [and not just crank through a bunch of mathematical gobbledy-gook] on the homework, I just came back from a recitation that was entirely devoted to giving us an intuitive feel for why the math works the way it does, with the barest minimum of equations.

I'm liking this.
