Understanding AI and Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are specialized domains within the broader field of computer science. They are revolutionizing the way businesses function by offering novel solutions to complex problems, automating tasks, and enhancing decision-making capabilities.

A well-known application of ML in businesses is predictive modeling for forecasting future outcomes, anomaly detection for identifying unusual patterns or outliers in datasets, and natural language processing for understanding and generating human language.

Both AI and ML are playing an increasingly important role in business operations. Their applications are diverse and expanding rapidly, from automating routine tasks and improving operational efficiency to enhancing customer experience and enabling data-driven decision making. Despite their complexity, these technologies are becoming more accessible and affordable, and are set to continue transforming the business landscape in the years to come.
