Artificial intelligence (AI) is the popular kid, and just like in high school, everyone wants to eat lunch with them and be the focus of their attention. Organizations aren’t much different. Information Week brought this interesting news to us in their article, “7 Technologies You Need to Know for Artificial Intelligence.

Everybody knows they need to invest in pilots and initial projects to get their feet wet with AI, but sometimes that is scary and the commitment isn’t there.

You may be wondering what it all means. Is AI the same as machine learning? Is machine learning the same as deep learning? Do you need them all?
