Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the area of computer science that focuses on creating intelligent machines that can perceive their environment and make decisions to optimise against a goal. Two disciplines frequently mentioned in the context of AI are Machine Learning and Computer Vision. Machine Learning (ML) aims to provide computers with the ability to learn iteratively, improve predictive models and find insights from data without being explicitly programmed. Computer Vision relies on a set of AI methods to train computers to interpret digital images and videos. Examples of computer vision applications include systems for facial recognition and medical diagnostics.
