Impact of Artificial Intelligence vs Humans and What the Future Holdsby Monomita Chakraborty January 15, 2021
Since AI has become a popular technology in the current industry, Artificial Intelligence vs. Human Intelligence has led to debates.
Artificial Intelligence has come a long way from being a part of science fiction to reality. Nowadays we are equipped with many intelligent devices, including self-driving vehicles, intelligent virtual aides, chatbots, and surgical robots. Since AI has become a popular technology in the current industry and a part of the everyday life of the common man, Artificial Intelligence vs. Human Intelligence has led to debates.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is a Computer Science Branch that aims at developing intelligent machines that carry out a broad variety of tasks, typically involving human intelligence and expertise. These smart machines are based on experience and historical information, assessing their environment, and conducting appropriate activities.
What is Human Intelligence?
Human Intelligence refers to the cognitive capacity of human beings that enables us to think, gain from various experiences, comprehend abstract concepts, apply logic and rationality, solve problems, identify patterns, make observations and choices, retain knowledge, and interact with fellow humans. It is supported by abstract emotions such as self-confidence, enthusiasm, and motivation to enable humans to perform complex tasks.
Benefits of Artificial Intelligence vs Human Intelligence
The pace of implementation — A doctor could make a diagnosis in around ten minutes, but a million could be made by the AI system simultaneously.
Less partial – There are no partial views on decision making.
Operational capacity-They don’t foresee an end to their work due to saturation
Accuracy-The specificity of the outcomes clearly enhances
In many activities, artificial intelligence is critical, in particular when it comes to tedious decisions.
Differences between Artificial Intelligence and Human Intelligence
Human Intelligence and pace of AI
Computers can handle more data at a faster rate, as opposed to humans. For instance, AI can solve 10 issues in a minute if the human mind can solve a mathematical problem in 5 minutes.
In decision making, AI is highly analytical as it assesses based on strictly collected data. The judgments of humans, however, can be affected by individual traits that are not based on statistics itself.
Human knowledge supports the multifunctional mission, as proved by separate and simultaneous functions, while AI can perform fewer tasks only when a machine can learn duties one by one.
As social beings, people can process abstract knowledge, become self-confident and sensitive to others’ feelings, and can interact much better. On the other hand, AI has not developed its ability to collect valuable social and emotional knowledge.
Future of Artificial Intelligence vs Humans
According to Pew Research Center, “Experts say the rise of artificial intelligence will make most people better off over the next decade, but many have concerns about how advances in AI will affect what it means to be human, to be productive, and to exercise free will.”
One example among others that they mentioned, Marina Gorbis, executive director of the Institute for the Future, said, “Without significant changes in our political economy and data governance regimes, AI is likely to create greater economic inequalities, more surveillance and more programmed and non-human-centric interactions. Every time we program our environments, we end up programming ourselves and our interactions. Humans have to become more standardized, removing serendipity and ambiguity from our interactions. And this ambiguity and complexity is what is the essence of being human.”
