What’s the difference between statistics and machine learning? – The Stats Geek

I had an interesting discussion at work today (among people I think would all call themselves statisticians!) about the distinction(s) between statistics and machine learning. It is something I am still not very clear about myself, and have yet to find a satisfactory answer.

@gideonro What's the difference between statistics and machine learning? This is a good line of questioning by @TheStatsGeek. My question: is it oversimplifying to say that machine learning is the automation of statistical processes? t.co/B2tOas6Jmy
@cubic_logic ML vs. Statistics "The claim that ML methods can be effective even when the data are not collected through a carefully controlled experimental design is interesting..." t.co/qErSspP0jX
