The difference between ML and AI is the difference between a still picture and a video: One is static; the other’s on the move. To get something out of machine learning, you need to know how to code or know someone who does. With artificial intelligence, you get something that takes an idea or a desire and runs with it, curiously seeking out new input and understandings.
You can think of curiosity as a kind of reward which the agent generates internally on its own, so that it can go explore more about its world,” This internally generated reward signal is known in cognitive psychology as “intrinsic motivation.” artificial intelligence researchers are starting to view intrinsic motivation as an important component of software agents that can learn efficiently and flexibly—that is, less like brittle machines and more like humans and animals.
The vision is, to quote one project’s slogan, “websites that just make themselves.” Software will evaluate your text content, line of business, and imagery, and spit out finished pages without your having to lift a finger.
