Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad term that refers to the creation of computers that can perform human-level tasks more efficiently. AI has been around for decades, but it’s only recently that computers have become capable of handling large-scale problems in a way that humans can’t. There are many different types of AI, including machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL), and unsupervised learning (UL). You’ll learn about each type in this article!

Artificial Intelligence

AI is the ability to perform tasks in a manner that is indistinguishable from human intelligence. It can be used in many different industries and applications, including healthcare, transportation, and manufacturing.

The first use of artificial intelligence was during World War II when it was used to help automated planes and submarines navigate through dangerous waters. This same technology has been applied to many other areas today such as self-driving cars or robotic drones that can patrol our borders undetected by humans (and without crashing).

Artificial intelligence can be used for a variety of purposes, but it all boils down to the ability to make decisions. For example, take Amazon’s Alexa: she can answer questions and perform tasks because she has been programmed with rules that tell her what to do in certain situations (e.g., when someone asks her how much sugar is in their coffee).

Machine Learning

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI), which refers to the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. It uses data to make predictions about future events and can be used for many purposes in both business and everyday life.

Machine learning is used in healthcare, finance, education, and many other industries as well as by individuals who want their personal data analyzed by AI algorithms.

Machine learning is used to predict future events based on past data. For example, it can be used to predict which patients are likely to be readmitted after being discharged from the hospital. This is because it can predict which students are most likely to drop out of school based on their academic performance and attendance history.

Machine learning is also used to predict trends and make decisions based on current data. For example, it can be used to predict stock market prices or suggest products that customers might like based on their past purchases.

Supervised Learning

Supervised learning is a type of machine learning that involves providing an algorithm with a set of training data. Then, it observes how it learns from the patterns in that data. The goal is to predict an output function given inputs (such as text). This can be used in many real-world applications including:

  • Credit scoring – predicting whether someone has enough money to pay back their loan
  • Speech recognition – recognizing speech in an audio file
  • Image classification – identifying objects from images

Unsupervised Learning

There are many types of machine learning, but unsupervised learning is a type that does not require labeled data to be analyzed. It’s used for predictive analytics, pattern recognition, and anomaly detection. Unsupervised learning is used to discover hidden patterns in data without labels or an explicit training set.

One example of unsupervised learning is clustering, which groups data points together based on similarities between them, rather than using a specific rule such as “the number three belongs here.” Clustering can be done on text or images; it’s most commonly done with images because there are many different types of objects that have similar properties (e.g., cars all look alike).

Deep learning is a type of machine learning that uses artificial neural networks. It’s used for computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. A neural network learns by adjusting the weights of its connections — similar to how the brain works.

Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement learning is a type of artificial intelligence in which a computer learns how to perform tasks without being explicitly programmed. In other words, it uses trial-and-error methods to figure out how best to complete certain tasks.

Here’s how it works: A robot or robot-like device is given an environment with possible actions and outcomes, then given feedback on its performance (for example, “you did this well!”). The AI can then adjust its actions based on the outcome of each action that occurred previously. This allows the robot/device to be more efficient at completing specific tasks over time—and even helps it avoid repeating mistakes altogether!

While this type of learning is very general and can be applied to many situations, it is not a form of machine intelligence. Instead, it’s more like how humans learn new things: through trial and error.

It’s important to note that reinforcement learning is not the same as supervised or unsupervised machine learning. In supervised learning, the AI is given labeled training data (for example, pictures of different types of flowers). Then, using this information as a reference point, it can recognize and label new data with similar characteristics. Unsupervised learning doesn’t require any labeled data; instead, it uses algorithms that can group objects together based on their similarities.

Technology will only improve

Technology will be able to do more and more things as it improves. AI will help with all kinds of tasks, from driving cars and flying planes to helping doctors diagnose illnesses and even running countries.

AI is already being used in many areas where humans are unable to compete: from finance and healthcare management to transportation planning and public safety response efforts like police officer training simulations (which are an effective way for departments across North America). Technology is improving so fast that it’s difficult for us as humans who aren’t trained specifically in artificial intelligence or machine learning systems like Google’s AlphaGo Zero program (which beat world champion Lee Sedol) or IBM Watson (which beat two professional players at Jeopardy!).


In conclusion, artificial intelligence and machine learning will continue to be an integral part of our future. With the increased use of these technologies, we are able to learn faster, produce higher-quality work, and address problems more efficiently.
