I was not terribly interested in ML, Deep Learning and/or AI until I read the book, The Creativity Code[^] by Marcus du Sautoy (mathematician)

That was a great introduction to some amazing things that are happening in the field and it got me interested in what AI is really able to do and how it is done.

Now, I'm reading a hands-on book that includes code and teaches Deep Learning concepts and code.

Here's a very good summary of which is what from the book:

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning, which is a field dedicated to the study and development of machines that can learn (sometimes with the goal of eventually attaining general artificial intelligence).

In industry, deep learning is used to solve practical tasks in a variety of fields such as computer vision (image), natural language processing (text), and automatic speech recognition (audio). In short, deep learning is a subset of methods in the machine learning toolbox, primarily using artificial neural networks, which are a class of algorithm loosely inspired by the human brain.
Here's a very nice graphic from the book [^] (Venn diagram type of thing) which shows how these three terms are related.

If you've felt apathetic about AI (as I have) and weren't sure how to dip your toe into the subject, I suggest you start with the first book and continue on into Grokking Deep Learning. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
