All machine learning is glorified statistical analysis

The statistics are simply stored as weights in the neuron connections which is why its often so hard to understand how they make their decisions. It would be the same as looking at some fairly simple standard code but a few megabytes of heirarchical control data and trying to figure out how it makes a decision.
