The Saavy Small Business Guide to Machine Learning vs. Artificial Intelligence – Capterra
Broadly speaking, artificial intelligence is a machine that thinks like a person. If that seems like a broad definition, it is. A better, and common, way to determine when something artificial is intelligent is the famous Turing test: If you didn’t know you were communicating with a computer, would you be able to tell?
If artificial intelligence is any machine that thinks like a human, the specific way machine learning “thinks like a human” is by learning. Computers that use machine learning don’t just take in information and spit it back out. They can look at different facts, the way a human does, turn those facts into concepts, and use those concepts to compute better and faster.
Machine learning is already in use in some high-profile projects. Here are a few examples you’ll probably recognize:
Autonomous vehicles (probably the most commonly cited example of ML)
The “did you mean” function when you misspell something in Google
The ranking of “top things to do” in a Google search for a given topic
Speech recognition capabilities (such as Siri)
