It’s a catch all for a collection of research and technologies as per this article.
And the part of AI that we see the most is machine learning as described in this article.
When we talk about AI these days, we’re usually referring to some type of machine learning. From being a medical checklist t o picking stocks rto self-driving cars, it’s machine learning. There’s no intelligence as we think of intelligence. The machine isn’t learning in the same way as we learn.

I’m not saying that machine learning will never get that sophisticated, but from everything I’ve read, it’s got a ways to go.
