Introduction to Machine Learning Chances are, you've heard of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). But what exactly are they? In short, artificial intelligence is a broad umbrella term that refers to any computer system that can perform complex tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, natural language processing, and decision-making. ML is a subset of AI that deals with the construction of machine learning models and the study of machine learning algorithms that can learn from and make predictions on data. In other words, machine learning is a computer's ability to automatically improve its performance on a task by learning from experience. So, machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computers to learn from data without being explicitly programmed. This makes it a powerful tool for a variety of industries and in a variety of business operations or workflows.
