Explain It Like I'm Five: What's the Difference Between AI, Machine Learning, NLP, & Deep Learning
About This Workshop
The followingsimple question, about a very complicated topic, was posted by a User last yearonQuora:
'What is the difference between AI, Machine Learning, NLP (Natural Language Processing), & Deep Learning?I have read pretty much all articles on these. But I fail to understand the fundamental differences. Please explain the differences to me like I'm a five year old.Help is much appreciated. Thanks!' -- Quora member
The answers came pouring in from engineers, AI experts, data scientists, professors, entrepreneurs, & futurists alike. Most of the answers went into great detail & offered clear distinctions between these four branches of cognitive computing. However, though the answers may have been technically correct, a person could easily walk away from reading the Quora post just asconfused about this topic as they were before reading it(and a 5-year old wouldn't stand a chance of understanding this).Check out the post for yourselfhere.
So, what exactlyisthe difference between AI, Machine Learning, NLP, & Deep Learning?Clearly, there's more to understanding these technologiesthan what can be gleaned from wikipedia, the dictionary, or Quora.
