In this article, we explain what Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning truly are. Most of us get easily confused about these so-called ‘buzzwords’, and we often think they are all the same. So, are they?
Let’s break down these terms one by one.
AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) – MACHINES IMITATING LIVING THINGS
When Alan Turing first came up with the idea of computers in the 1940s, any machine capable of doing calculation was considered having artificial intelligence. As technology evolved, AI became a more complicated field that refers to machines or applications that mimic animal or human behavior. While people in recent decades do like to define AI with more emphasis on the possession of human cognitive functions (such as the ‘learning’ phase and problem-solving skills), algorithms borrowing concepts from biology (e.g. swarm intelligence, genetic algorithm) are in fact in the AI textbook as well.
