The Real-World Brain Debate: AI Intelligence vs. Human Intelligence

Human Intelligence

Up until now, human intelligence has been far more superior and smarter than anything else on the planet and that includes computers and the animal kingdom. Humans can be defined as emotional beings that have adapted to the changing world. We have evolved to have larger and more complex brains — that includes highly developed intelligence with the mental ability to use reasoning, problem-solving and real-world learning through observation, trial and error, imitation, life experiences, and innovation. Humans have an innate predetermined ability with encoded instincts that appear in early childhood to help us think and learn effectively.

Artificial Intelligence

However, artificial intelligence can do everything we can do and with a key component to solving the world’s biggest mysteries in life from understanding galaxies that are far away to a deeper knowledge of how particles come together through the quantum physics phenomena.

Until now, it has been nearly impossible to understand quantum physics — even with the most seasoned researchers and scientists; humans haven’t been able to breakthrough billions of particles. This is where AI shines at its best with highly intelligent genetic algorithms that will enhance our understanding of quantum behavior. AI is impacting jobs, creating new jobs and eliminating old jobs. Just like humans, AI brings creativity, ingenuity, and imagination to industries are struggling to compete.

Artificial Intelligence is extremely beneficial by transforming heavily regulated industries like financial services, healthcare, trading, and life sciences by focusing on four essential areas:

Descriptive Analytics – Is the ability to qualify events — helps to describe and present data simply and effortlessly so users can easily understand the analytics. Big data can be put into actionable insights and descriptive analytics is the preliminary stage of data processing. Information gathered can be organized and the data is put into identifiable patterns and groups by summarizing the data that makes sense to the user; such as social media followers, posts, fans at events and types of audiences.

Prescriptive Analytics – Determines the best course of action and is the final phase of business analytics which includes descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics. Data is automatically synthesizing big data and multiple disciplines and anticipates what will happen next in a sequence of events. Prescriptive gathers numbers, categories, unstructured data like videos, images, sounds and texts and combines business rules to predict what lies ahead.

Predictive Analytics – Analyzes customer behavior in sales and marketing and can forecast, predict stock prices and future trends and the direction of the stock market to preventing crimes. Can build trainable data by importing the data into libraries, fetching data into classifications and can predict target variables from Open-Close and High-Low indicators in the stock market.

Performance Analytics – Businesses will understand crucial operations, adhere to regulatory standards, reach global ethics, and meet ethical standards by measuring big data against performance, metrics, and assessment, and evaluation techniques and can streamline operational efficiencies and create sustainable long-term goals.

It’s imperative that companies understand, educate and learn the new ways AI tools are changing the work landscape and blue-collar industries. People will begin to see how powerful and transforming AI can really be — whether personal or professional, there is no escaping the ways AI enhances everyone’s life.

People can now be better informed with tools and algorithms that coach, teach and qualify data for more accurate records, statistics on the competitive landscape. Companies can make way for improvements, minimize overhead costs, reduce headcount and AI can speed up decision making on critical issues. And allow businesses to adapt to the changing environment with a more ethical approach to reporting strategizing and analyzing policies, processes, and procedures by removing human bias.
