At its core, science is all about finding causal relations. For example, it is not enough to know that smoking and cancer are correlated; what is important is to know that if we start or stop smoking, then that will change our probability of getting cancer.
Machine learning (ML) as it exists today usually does not take causality into account, and instead is merely concerned with prediction based on statistical associations. This can lead to problems when using such models for decision making. For example, we may find a strong and statistically robust correlation between the chocolate consumption per capita, and the number of Nobel Prizes per capita but if we would use this model to inform policy (encouraging people to eat more chocolate), we would probably not obtain the desired result.
