Are there any examples of machine learning in our PC's? The only one that I know is Windows Speech Recognition application.

I do not mean any add-ons. I mean any basic applications that are available in most PC's.

EDIT: Any reference would be helpful.

    $\begingroup$ Good question. Increasingly, the personal computer is a device running Android/iOS. I think it pays to consider how much of that revolution is caused by ML. $\endgroup$ – user603 Feb 24 '14 at 10:07

    $\begingroup$ Because this merely asks for a list of things it doesn't really fit within the SE framework. What actual problem are you trying to solve? $\endgroup$ – whuber Feb 24 '14 at 16:38

Depending on the implementation (or your definition of ML), spell checkers and grammar checkers would be a common example.

Newer laptops allow one to login either through a fingerprint reader or via facial recognition. I don't see the use of facial recognition that often though, but fingerprint readers built into laptops are becoming more common in my experience.

Browsers might be using. Google chrome uses "bloom filter" inbuilt, though this a probabilistic approach, may not be considered as machine learning in pure sense.
