Data Mining vs Machine Learning vs Artificial Intelligence vs Data Science

Updated: 2020-06-29

There are no clear boundaries among these terms

Machine learning

More like another name of "statistics", but in computer science.

Data Mining

Data Mining == Knowledge Discovery in Databases(KDD)

This may no longer be the accurate definition of data mining, since data can be stored in a data lake(like on HDFS of a Hadoop cluster) but not necessarily in a database.

The scope, summarized in wikipedia:

it involves database and data management aspects, data pre-processing, model and inference considerations, interestingness metrics, complexity considerations, post-processing of discovered structures, visualization, and online updating.

Artificial Intelligence

A much broader term, machine learning is a big part of it.
