The relation between AI, ML, and DL – Hands-On Python Deep Learning for the Web

The relation between AI, ML, and DL

To make sure that our basics are clear regarding the distinction between AI, ML, and DL, let's refer to the following diagram, which elegantly captures the relationship between these three big names:

The diagram is quite self-explanatory and it has been referred to in many books in the field of DL. Let's try drawing an interesting conclusion from this diagram.

All DL systems are ML systems and therefore all DL systems are AI systems as well. But the converse is not truenot all AI systems are DL systems. 

The statement may appear slightly confusing at first glance, but if we got our basics right, then this captures the distinction between AI, ML, and DL beautifully. We will proceed toward revisiting some of the necessary ML terminologies and concepts that will be required in the latter parts of this book.
