The radical difference actually lies in the application.
The parameters allow users to insert the values, which can be integers, float, date, string that can be used in calculations.
The filters only receive values users choose to ‘filter by’ the list, which cannot be used to calculate.
The users can dynamically change the dimensions and measures in parameter but filters do not approve the feature.
