Differences between AI and Machine Learning
They say AI is more like a software and machine learning focuses on a particular task. I think they both complement each other and they can work together to make or achieve something great.

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
Apache! I haven't heard that word in quite some time. I remember using Apache in college to set up a web server for a project I was working on. 

Good to hear people are still using this!

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
@clrmoney I agree that the two, machine learning and AI, complement one another. I once wrote an article about name recognition, which I think is a good example of how machine learning is used. It is more based on algorithms. It was implemented to search for possible terrorists to see whether they were on a no-fly list. http://www.crn.com/features/channel-programs/50500044/have-we-got-a-match-for-you.htm

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
I am very surprised that you have not heard about Apache lately. Does Apache Spark or Apache Mesos sound familiar?

There is an entire community of Apache software developers. You can get an overview at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Software_Foundation

I believe that Apache and Big Data analytics are virtually synonymous.

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
AI is the category while machine learning algorithms are specific solutions for specific problems.

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
Thank you for this guidance--very interesting read as well!

Beyond the wikipedia citation, FYI:

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
I agree with @Kishore Jethanandani - machine learning is a component of how AI works. But it also requires things like data in order to work. 

AI is a big and complex subject. It's pretty interesting though.

Re: Differences between AI and Machine Learning
Seems like these terms were introduced in order to avoid another "AI Winter" -- the overpromise of "Artificial Intelligence" and the constantly moving goalposts for AI makes the field of AI hesitant to use broad terms that imply some kind of science fiction realization.

The relation depends on the definition ...
Some AI researchers cling to a model of human intelligence that is something like a master control room or switchboard with a little homunculus inside the skull, throwing switches and running the show -- I would say it's a hangover religious model and that little person inside is a barely disguised version of the "soul." For those people the AI challenge is some advanced version of the Turing Test -- a machine that you can't tell doesn't have a little person inside, like your little person.

More recent models point to consciousness as a kind of running log of what's actually being done by a vast congeries of capabilities in the form of instincts, habits, learned procedures, customs, hunches, guesses, heuristics, near and far transfers, analogies, etc.

In one version Mary works, possibly consciously and possibly not, toward becoming a good cook by adding skills. In another, Mary's self-vision of herself as a good cook is a way of organizing the enormous numbers of skills and bits of knowledge she has come to possess.

Now, if you're a "soul in the robot's control room" kinda person, you see AI as a distant goal toward which we are slowly making our way, theoretically interesting and possibly significant much later in history, and machine learning as just some useful tech coming along at the moment.  But if you're a "congeries of little skillsets, mindlets, and tricks" kind of person, you see machine learning as how the AI gets here, and you don't expect that it will ever resemble human intelligence (no matter how smart it gets) any more than airplanes have feathers and flap their wings.

And yep, I'm over in the "library of tricks" side of things.
