The defining characteristics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are constantly being updated as previous benchmarks become outdated. The key trait however is its ability to rationalize and then take action toward achieving a specific goal.
Machine Learning (ML), which refers to the concept that computer programs can automatically learn from and adapt to new data without being assisted by humans, is a subset of AI. These deep learning techniques enable this automatic learning through the absorption of huge amounts of unstructured data such as text, images, or video.
Today AI is being used across many different industries from finance to healthcare.
