ML y estadística, ¿cosas distintas?

Recomiendo, sin comentarlo, un artículo muy desasosegador en el que se leen cosas como:

At this point, I had taken only an introductory statistics class that was a required general elective, and then promptly forgotten most of it. Needless to say, my statistical skills were not very strong. Yet, I was able to read and understand a paper on a state-of-the-art generative machine learning model, implement it from scratch, and generate quite convincing fake images of non-existent individuals by training it on the MS Celebs dataset.

Todo interesante y nada que tomarse a la ligera. Es No, Machine Learning is not just glorified Statistics.

Nota: coméntalo si quieres; yo igual vuelvo sobre él pronto.
