Deep learning, machine learning and data science

Deep learning, machine learning, and data science are popular topics, yet many are unclear about the differences between them. Where deep learning neural networks and machine learning algorithms fall under the umbrella term of artificial intelligence, the field of data science is both larger and not fully contained within its scope.

In a nutshell, data science represents the entire process of finding meaning in data. Machine learning algorithms are often used to assist in this search because they are capable of learning from data. Deep learning is a sub-field of machine learning but has improved capabilities. Many experts agree that deep learning has the potential to become the backbone of true artificial intelligence or strong Ai.
