AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a set of technologies that are used for updating the data and web page without reloading the page. Using this, you can send data in the background, request/receive data from a server after the page has loaded.

REST (REpresentational State Transfer) uses HTTP requests to transfer data between the client and the server. It defines a set of constraints for the successful creation of the RESTful web services.

AJAX and REST are completely orthogonal. You can use REST for creating an AJAX call. REST is one way of implementing AJAX.
