Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence.  Most AI applications nowadays are indeed using or will use ML soon. Machine learning is a subset of AI. That is, all machine learning counts as AI, but not all AI counts as machine learning.

ML is an application layer of AI based on the idea that we can just feed machines data and let them learn on their own.

One major application of machine learning is in communication with people. The field of AI called natural language processing (NLP) heavily uses machine learning.

ML is the leading edge of AI. Many uses of AI in operations apply ML.  AI is the result of lots of ML models working together. AI and predictive analytics can help companies identify patterns in data to customize e-commerce for individual consumers.
