In last week’s post, we discussed if machine learning was right for your business. As part of that effort, I recently went through the process of learning the ins-and-outs of machine learning and realized most information out there is technical and aimed at developers or data scientists.

Let’s break that down to set some foundations on which to build our machine learning knowledge.
