Machine Learning is one of the leading spaces of Artificial Intelligence. It helps computers to get into a self-learning mode without the need for any new external programming every single time. By implementing Machine Learning computers are taught to understand, grow and develop by themselves when they are fed with new data. Implementing Machine Learning in Data Science is to basically automate the process of Data Analysis and enable the process of making data-informed predictions in real-time without any human intervention. A Data Model is developed and trained to make real-time predictions. This is how the Machine Learning Algorithms are implemented in the Data Science

Organizations today are more data-driven than ever before. They tend to collect large amounts of raw data for processing and analyzing trends. Data Science is a domain that deals with the processes and systems that extract information from both structured and semi-structured data. Machine Learning on the other hand is the domain that enables computers to learn without the need for explicitly programming every time. Data Science and Machine Learning are intertwined through the process where machine learning enables systems to automatically process data to identify new trends without external programming.

The major difference between Data Science vs Machine Learning lies in their basic applications. Data Science deals with collecting and analyzing data for newer trends. While Machine Learning is primarily concerned with the group of tools and techniques used by data scientists that allow computers to learn from data.
