The term artificial intelligence (AI) is making a comeback. I interpret AI as a larger, encompassing umbrella that includes machine learning -- which in turn includes deep learning methods -- but also implies thought. Meanwhile, machine learning is somehow safe to talk about. It's just some applied math -- e.g., built-over probabilities, linear algebra, differential equations -- under the hood. But use the term AI and, suddenly, you get wildly different emotional reactions —for example, the Terminator is coming.
