Artificial intelligence capabilities and inabilities in software solutions

There are more and more startups, articles and advertisement for applications stating that they “use AI”, have “AI capabilities” or similar “AI *” claims. In most of those cases that applications are using machine learning functionalities and models and do not have anything related to artificial intelligence in them.

Machine learning is not artificial intelligence, machine learning is one of building blocks on the path of developing artificial intelligence. Models and techniques that are based on machine learning and implemented in some software solution do not mean that that software has any relation with artificial intelligence.
