The terms Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (ML) became buzzwords in the past 10 years but only a few have solid grasp of the concepts behind it. In several news and articles, they are mistakenly used interchangeably however they have different meaning and assumes different knowledge for the users to deeply understand their methods. ML techniques were originally used in different fields of academia but quickly became a powerful tool for companies to improve business, provide for better customer experience and generate operational efficiencies.
