Artificial Intelligence: Artificial Intelligence(AI) can be defined as the collection of different technologies that allow the machine to act at the human level of intelligence. This process required learning from past experiences and self-correction to make a certain decision and to reach a certain conclusion. 

Automation: Automation is designed as something which runs itself with little or no human interaction by some specific patterns and rules to perform repetitive tasks. Automation is used every day and everywhere in life. Automation is widely used in E-Commerce, Banking, the Telecommunication industry, etc. For Example:- When we book an appointment with the doctor and receive an email/message before our appointment, this is like an automated response.

3.AI is for non-repetitive tasks.While Automation is for repetitive tasks based on commands and rules.
4.AI involves learning and evolving.Automation does not involve learning and evolving.
5.AI interacts with humans and it learns from experience and compares the situations and then works according to them.While Automation has no interaction with humans and it works on instructions.
6.It is possible for AI systems to “understand” data.An automated system collects data.

To exemplify, Amazon selects the item most suitable to your taste from its million products based on what the system thinks would be the best course of action.It follows your instructions exactly; no decisions are made by it.
