AI is basically decision making. Giving information, how does a machine learn from its environment, take decisions, without human oversight. How does a machine adapt itself with more experience.

ML is just a way to create models.

For example the SLAM algorithm is an important algorithm in AI, because it allows robots to map their environment. However, this is not ML at all.

Another example of AI is knowledge graphs, like the earliest chess engines. A perfect chess AI can be made without any machine learning at all.

It's important to keep making the distinction.

Slam exactly fits the definition of ml.

The more data you give it, the better the map gets, and the better we expect localisation to be.

It has no generalisation at all, but it is learning something very specific about a particular environment.

Slam is pure Mechatronics which I don't consider ml.

It exactly matches Mitchell's definition of ml though.

Localisation error decreases the more data you have.
