Cognitive science versus artificial intelligence

How might we distinguish between cognitive science and artificial intelligence? Cognitive science uses the methods of science (e.g., theory and experimentation) to try to understand the nature of thought and mind (consciousness, reasoning,....).  Artificial intelligence is more engineering, it uses the methods/resources of science , mathematics and technology to create a useful product. There is, of course, considerable overlap between the two.
