Let's Talk Artificial Intelligence and Its Subsets

Mohammed NaserMohammed Naser

Artificial Intelligence and its subsets are often confused and referred to interchangeably. We are here to help you differentiate between the three and find a suitable infrastructure.

In our modern lives, we experience the many facets of artificial intelligence every single day. From applications that power our everyday activities such as smart homes, our favorite music streaming platforms, and beyond, users come into contact with various forms of artificial intelligence daily.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning have often been used interchangeably even though this could not be further from the truth. Although they do go together they are not the same. To better understand Deep Learning and Machine Learning we need to start at the beginning. Artificial Intelligence is the large umbrella and all the others fit into it like Russian dolls. Just like an artichoke, it takes several layers before we get into the heart of things. If you are feeling confused between the three do not worry. Luckily for you, the experts at VEXXHOST are ready to dive into the difference and what they mean for your business or organization. Keep reading to learn more about the difference between artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI, also known as machine intelligence, gives machines the ability to think like humans. It is able to study the various ways in which programs and machines solve problems and learns to replicate this behavior. This machine-based intelligence is remarkable because it typically displays processes that are usually akin to human intelligence. Smart machines have a significant impact on day to day life in our modern world. Thus, it is also able to impact businesses across a wide range of industries. Thanks to AI's ability to implement smart automation and process data efficiently, it is becoming a part of many business models. In regards to the cloud, AI is able to create better, more strategic cloud computing environments. Therefore, offering businesses who opt for the cloud the agility and flexibility that they need to thrive.


Machine Learning (ML)

ML is a subset of AI that focuses on helping machine systems learn and improve through machines. It makes those machines become better at a specific task without explicit programming. Although it is not identical to AI, it is an important part of a wider ecosystem surrounding it. ML uses neural networks and other algorithms to help problem-solve on its own. The cloud has the ability to help your business utilize ML in your day to day operations. Having the ability to automate wherever necessary can have a powerful impact on your business, as ML empowers businesses to increase productivity while simultaneously decreasing overall costs. In terms of return on investment, ML in the cloud can help grow businesses.

Deep Learning (DL)

DL, also known as deep neural learning, is a further subset of artificial intelligence and machine learning. It takes advantage of artificial neural networks in a way that is very similar to the human neural system. This means that it is able to take a detailed look into various factors without implicitly programming it to do so. Deep Learning takes artificial intelligence a step further thanks to new innovations in technology, it enables multi-layer networks for machine learning.

Learning The Difference

AI, ML, and DL power more than many even realize. From speech recognition, learning, planning, and problem-solving, it is safe to say that AI is an essential part of today's technology industry. Is your business looking to get started with artificial intelligence? If so then you must be in need of powerful infrastructure too.
