Top definition
1. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm that proposes solutions to a problem after learning from several trial and error attempts.
2. A term that students use at hackathons to sound smart, especially when they actually have no idea what it means.
Example (from a 2011 Hackathon):
C++ Code:
int main()

cout<<"Enter your name";

cin >> name;

cout << "Hello, Brian!";
Brian: We used machine learning to greets the user, by learning their name.
*Brian won 4th place at the hackathon*
