The development in the computer system has been processed with time. The system has been designed in a way to classify information similar to a human brain. This technology, Neural Network, is doubtlessly teaching computers to think and understand the world in a way we do. But, this Neural Network only works correctly when a considerably apt data is fed to the computer system. With the help of the data input, the computer is able to make statements, decisions or predictions to a certain level of reliability and validity.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are well-known terms and crop up when we hear about technologies like Big Data & Analytics.

Machines are equally getting smart and capable enough to complete any task, for instance, optical character recognition has become a routine technology. Modern capabilities such as successfully understanding human speech, competing at the highest level in strategic game systems, autonomously operating cars, military simulations and intelligent routing in content delivery networks are classified as AI.

The more we understand things, the more approaches to AI change.  Artificial Intelligence is classified into two groups – Applied and Generalized.

Applied Artificial Intelligence in systems is designed to smartly trade stocks and shares or maneuver autonomous cars.

Generalized Artificial Intelligence in systems is not very commonly used but is giving a contribution to exciting advancements. Further, it has helped in the development of Machine Learning.

Apparently, Artificial Intelligence is a broader term than Machine Learning, able to carry tasks in a smart way. But, they are different from each other and contribute together to a better world.

machine learning vs artificial intelligence


Machine Learning VS Artificial Intelligence – Variant 1

Machine Learning brought breakthroughs in AI field initially. These two concepts differ and their separate computer algorithm makes them different. The algorithm that allows computer programs to work automatically and improve with time through learning is Machine Learning. Whereas, AI is the integration of science and engineering into computer making them intelligent as humans.

These algorithms have the ability to function as per the data input. In ML the machine is integrated with small and large data-sets that examines and compares the patterns and subtly explores the difference in detail. But, in case of AI, the system is integrated with the ability to perform tasks that require human intelligence such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, translate languages and many more, without any human assistance.

Machine Learning VS Artificial Intelligence – Variant 3

AI & ML are further divided for better comprehensions, each of them is classified into 3 types. Machine Learning is classified into - a) Supervised learning, b) Unsupervised learning, c) Reinforcement learning.
a)       A supervised learning algorithm analysis is the relationship and dependencies between the target prediction input and output from the previously data-sets fed to predict the output values.
b)      Unsupervised learning algorithms learn by detecting the pattern and descriptive modelling.
c)       Reinforcement learning algorithm system works by gathering data from the environment interactions using iteration to take actions.

As a result, computers are beating humans on various computer games.

Similarly, Artificial Intelligence is classified into - a) Analytical, b) Human-inspired, c) Humanized artificial intelligence.  
a)       Analytical AI has characteristics to be in uniform with cognitive intelligence. To make an unvarying decision in future AI learns from the past experience generating the cognitive representation of the world.
b)      Human-inspired AI has characteristics that of an Analytical AI but also has elements of understanding human emotions further considering both for future decision making.

c)       Humanized AI shows characteristics of both – Analytical AI and Human-inspired AI elements. Thus, has the capability of self-conscious and self-aware to interact with others.

The future possibilities of machine learning are also endless. ML is allowing computers to determine whether the text in the content is negative or positive or if a song that is playing will make people happy or sad. Some of the machines are capable enough in making their own compositions after learning. Artificial Intelligence consists of concepts from Good Old-Fashioned AI (GOFAI) to futuristic technologies such as Deep Learning. One major application used by AI for communication with people is natural learning processing. This feature will allow companies to offer automated customer service similar to human support.

To Conclude–

AI or Artificial Intelligence means those machines that can perform human-like tasks intelligently. These machines are programmed not just to follow a single task or in a repetitive motion rather they can adapt to different situations and do more. Machine learning, on the other hand, is technically a branch of AI but is different from AI. Machine learning is based on the idea of building machines that can process data and learn without any supervision. However, the concept of AI was earlier ‘logical’ as the first computers weren’t able to make decisions on their own. They could just remember information and make calculations. Now, they have become smarter and will continue to do more.
