Machine learning is now seen as a quick fix for solving all problems, but not always.

Most people reading this are hopefully familiar with machine learning and the relevant algorithms used to classify or predict outcomes based on data. Nevertheless, it is crucial to understand that machine learning is not always the answer to all problems. Given the value of machine learning, it can be hard to accept that sometimes it is not the best solution to a problem.
