Unlike the natural intelligence exhibited by animals, including humans, artificial intelligence is a form of intelligence demonstrated by robots and machine learning dwells on that. Through the use of machine learning, which is a form of artificial intelligence, software programmes can predict outcomes more accurately without being explicitly instructed to do so. In order to forecast new output values, machine learning algorithms use historical data as input.
