Latest trends in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?

Before we discuss on the trendy topics for research, let us first clear the air on the differences in terminology. The key question that you need to ask is this: are AI and machine learning the same buzzwords?

No. machine learning (ML) is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI). Also, machine learning plays a role in big data. And deep learning is a part of machine learning; however, these concepts tend to be mentioned interchangeably. Now, what do these concepts entail?

A quick intro

AI or machine intelligence is a wider term compared to machine learning, and AI leverages the use of computers to imitate the cognitive aspects/functions of human beings; act, react and work just like a human

AI is about machines performing routines in a smart fashion that is based on algorithms. On the other hand, machine learning is a subgroup of AI that harnesses the capability of machines to receive data and learn by itself—say modifying algorithms—as and when they know more about the information that they are processing. And this alteration happens based on previous experience. So computers are not explicitly programmed. We use the word “intelligence” because the algorithm is modified to perform better than the previous instance.

Let’s dive in to the key topics that are worth considering for your research from 2018 to 2020.
