Defined as a field of computer science, machine learning gives computers that use algorithms the ability to learn from and to make decisions without programming based on data.[i] In this interview with Michelle Huff CMO of ACT-On we learn how ACT-On is using ML to drive decisions that help their users sell more. The host is Jim Obermayer.
