- Just look at all the “What is the difference between Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?”
- Really, why should Machine Learning be defined in relation to AI?The slippery definition issue above can be looked at as follows: it is the term “Artificial Intelligence” looking for things to refer to.
- This is no more true now than it was 50 years ago but many smart people are utterly convinced of it.The term “Artificial Intelligence” has been around since the early days of computer science, when “thinking machines” were seen as the natural next step after programming basic logic.
The internet is awash with stories about something called Artificial Intelligence. Confusion around what it is is prompting many to proffer definitions of it, or corrections of wrong definitions…
