AI, ML and DL: What's the difference?

So you find yourself saying “Well, it’s time we step on to digital transformation for our organization. Let’s look at the technologies we can implement.”

When you complete saying that sentence, the first thing that comes to your mind is Artificial Intelligence(AI) systems. You think of intelligence machines that can execute tasks on their human and make insightful decisions – like Sophie or Watson.

“So artificial intelligence(AI) is what we need.”, you say to yourself

Yes and No. Yes, in the sense that AI machines are useful for digital transformation.

No in the sense that you will integrate Artificial Intelligence with the help of algorithms which build the foundation for these systems. So you are not integrating AI but the algorithms that make AI machines work.

Here’s a simple explanation – The process that you want to improve through digital transformation will be optimized through AI machines.

These machines will be developed using a subset of AI – Machine Learning Algorithms. To go further deep – your organization can also implement Deep Learning – a subset of Machine Learning.

Difference between Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning(ML), and Deep Learning(DL)

You might be confused about whether you should implement Artificial Intelligence Systems, Machine Learning Programs, or Deep Learning Algorithms.

Let us clear this confusion for you.
