What is the difference between artificial intelligence and machine learning?

Machine learning has been defined by many people in multiple (often similar) ways [1, 2]. One definition says that machine learning (ML) is the field of study that gives computers the ability to learn ...

If expert systems are a bunch of if-then-else statements, then how are they termed as AI?

TL;DR: What makes AI is not if-then statements, but rather the automated reasoning that went into selecting those particular if-then statements. You're focusing on the structure of the output rather ...
