Overall Opinion: "Machine learning" has become somewhat of a buzzword in the past few years, causing many people to think of Skynet-style artificially intelligence becoming self-aware and turning us into organic batteries. Fear not: Machine learning is far more tame than that and has many practical applications, none of which involve enslaving the human race. Those who dabble in the field, and probably those who get paid to do so, have likely heard of XGBoost, which has become sort of a phenomenon for harnessing the power of machine learning. It certainly helps that the code is open source and free, which has caused it to spread like wildfire throughout the online community. XGBoost is a software library, which means it can be "installed" on machines which can then reference the software's functions in compact lines of code.

The software is actively contributed to every day, has a lively community and is used quite often at events and competition.
Pros: Works on major desktop operating systems Windows, MacOS and Linux Since XGBoost is open source, the code is available online on GitHub Loads of documentation online thanks to an enthusiastic and active community of coders
Cons: Lacks support for a few coding languages No mobile device support
