Human Intelligence And Artificial Intelligence

There is little consensus on what human intelligence is, how it works, and how it is formed. There are several different theories as to what intelligence is, and there is no concrete explanation of intelligence. Despite these uncertainties, many have proposed the idea modeling human intelligence and creating artificial intelligence. Many see artificial intelligence as a way to bypass human error and to improve jobs by completing them faster and more accurately. They argue that artificial intelligence can be based on human intelligence, and thought processes can be translated into computer programs to create a non-human entity that can think. In contrast, many others do not think it is possible to recreate the human mind and thought…show more content…
In the article Some Current Trends in Research of Intelligence, Imrich Ruisel examines three different concepts of intelligence before applying the ideas to artificial intelligence. As there is not a single set of ideas about intelligence, multiple theories and concepts need to be looked at in order to try and replicate intelligence into artificial intelligence. Ruisel breaks down intelligence into three categories: (one) a general intelligence represented by Spearman’s g factor and is based on biological differences accounting for differences in cognitive performance, (two) intelligence as it relates to behavior, and (three) intelligence is composed of a set of abilities and an individual’s total knowledge (Ruisel 2007). Each of these three concepts of intelligence provides different challenges in the task to create artificial intelligence. However, it is still important to consider different views of intelligence when looking at artificial intelligence; artificial intelligence cannot be understood or created unless all of the information about intelligence itself is known. As human intelligence consists of many different aspects, artificial intelligence must follow this pattern if it is to be based on human intelligence. In her article On the Approaches of Classical Artificial Intelligence and Embodied Artificial Intelligence, Elena Nechita explains classical approaches to artificial intelligence and some of the problems associated with
