Machine Learning is not just a buzzword; it’s the high-tech wizardry that’s granting our computers the uncanny ability to think, predict, and sometimes even act a smidge rebellious. Picture this: instead of tediously coding software to execute specific tasks, we feed our devices heaps of data, like overenthusiastic parents with a spoon of mashed peas, and voila, they magically learn from the data and get better over time. It’s like training your pet, only these pets can recognize your face, recommend you movies, or, in more sinister scenarios, finally realize you’re terrible at keeping indoor plants alive.

Now, why do Machine Learning jokes tickle our funny bones? Simply put, we’re all a tad wary of our gadgetry getting too smart. It’s one thing for your phone to suggest a restaurant, but quite another if it starts critiquing your dating choices! Thus, the internet is filled with hilarious anecdotes like, “Why did the Machine Learning model break up with the gradient? Because it was feeling stuck in a local minimum!” These puns are a mix of genuine geeky humor and our collective way of coping with the eerie idea of a coffee machine one day refusing our brew request due to our caffeine intake. Embrace the laughs, because if machines start cracking jokes better than us, we’re truly in uncharted waters!

A company develops a machine for evaluating IQ.
The scientists developing it ask for the help of the supervisor, manager, and president of the firm to test the machine.
When the supervisor placed his head on the machine, it responded: ‘IQ 160’, and he was very impressed.
When the manager placed his head on the machine, it responded: ‘IQ 170’, and he was very impressed.
When the president placed his head on the machine, it hummed for a bit and responded, “This is a very sensitive machine, please do not use rocks as test subjects’, and the president was furious.
After hurried improvement, the scientists asked the three to try again. This time the machine gave the manager an IQ of 165, and the supervisor an IQ of 170 and both were very happy, saying it was more accurate.
After the president placed his head on the machine, it hummed for a bit and responded: ‘This is a very hot rock’, and the president was furious, threatening to fire the scientists.
After a third improvement phase, the scientists assured everyone that the machine was perfect. This time, the supervisor was given an IQ of 170, and the supervisor an IQ of 175. Both praised the machine stating that it was perfect and urged the president to try again.
Having learned from his past mistakes, this time the president decides to place the rock onto the machine first. After some humming, the machine responded, “Welcome Mr president!”
