"Machine learning" not new

Obligatory XKCD

Why in the world are so many jumping on the "machine learning" buzz wagon? It's called "collecting and processing data." The only difference is that now we have YUGE piles of data, and if we apply a neural network, then we have no idea how the machine came up with the answer in the first place.

Progress!
