What is the difference between Machine Learning and Deep Learning? Machine Learning Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computers to learn and change without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning jobs typically involve programming algorithms and statistics and require someone to be there to monitor and check the outputs and changes. Deep Learning Deep learning is a type of machine learning that utilizes layered neural networks to learn tasks by building upon what it has already learned. Deep learning jobs typically involve more coding than machine learning jobs.
