Another nice use of machine learning to assist humans in classifying things manually -- in this case, triaging bug reports for Firefox!

This is the kind of "AI" that makes a lot of sense in FOSS/open content projects where there's a lot of work to do and only so many devs or volunteers able to do it. Multiply their ability to do stuff by speeding up the slow bits, don't try to replace the humans!
