Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are being used interchangeably as a term across all segments of technological applications. Due to their close relation, AI is often confused with ML but one should not forget the distinction between the two. Out of all the differences, one is surely the biggest – that machine learning is a subset of AI. Technology professionals must understand the trivial difference both possess. Lacking the clarity between AI and ML, professionals as well as their companies may get misguided and eventually lose their relevance in the market with fake or misleading AI solutions.
Machine learning is one way to accomplish that. The technology uses statistical analysis to learn autonomously and improve its function, explains Sarah Burnett, executive vice president, and distinguished analyst at a management consultancy and research firm Everest Group.
