This is a technical article with some good less-technical points. First, we have the idea of how straightforward machine learning has become, as noted in the title. Second, though, those seven lines embody considerable depth of function. The data is run through several layers of neural networks (five of the seven lines in question). Finally, this: "The essence of machine learning is recognizing patterns within data." But it's not just the essence of machine learning, it's the essence of learning in general. To know is to recognize. To recognize is to be connected in a particular configuration. To learn is to form those connections from experience and reflection.
