What is AI and machine learning?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer or robot that is controlled by a computer to complete tasks that are typically done by humans as they require human discernment and intelligence. It leverages the power of computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities possible within the human mind.
Machine learning (ML) is a subset of AI that uses data and algorithms to imitate the ways humans learn and automates analytical model building—continuously improving its accuracy. This branch of AI is based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions with very minimal human involvement.
