The reality is that AI is still heavily-reliant upon smart, willing and trained humans in order for AI to behave in a manner that we would expect. Humans are needed to scope the problems, identify relevant examples and verify the results. Without humans as a guide, current AI is no more capable
Fundamentally, machine learning is a productivity tool for data scientists. As the heart of systems that can learn from data, machine learning allows data scientists to train a model on an example data set and then leverage algorithms that automatically generalize and learn both from that example
