You let the algorithm use All the data and hoped for the best

You let the all-knowing algorithm sort out all the data, you weren’t going to be able to pair that data down well at all, there was tons of it. Best let the algorithm decide, that’s what it’s good at. After a few years of testing, you only improved the US panda birth rate by a few percentage points compared the old model and they are still a declining population. Despite the improvement and your paycheck for trying, the Federal Sexual Panda Relocation Squad (FSPR) is angry at your algorithm and harassing you online for making them move pandas across the US so much when they could have found compatibility in their own backyard. Overtraining on all that data appeared to find a lot of patterns that weren’t actually there causing a lot of unnecessary panda relocations by the FSPR!
