The one top question is who is better Artificial Intelligence VS Humans? Artificial Intelligence has bested human beings in jeopardy, StarCraft and Chess. But it isn’t all fun in games. AI is also competing with humans in the military, medical, and transportation sectors. Artificial intelligence was developed to mimic and even potentially surpass human intelligence.
Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) Replace Humans?
Could it someday replace humans in the workforce altogether? Or are the limitations of AI too challenging to overcome? There are many benefits to using AI-driven applications over people. AI doesn’t mind tedious, dangerous, or risky work like a human might. Plus, AI doesn’t have to sleep or eat, meaning it’s available 24/7. These machines can handle a lot more data than humans, and they’ll do it faster and with more accuracy. The world’s fastest and most powerful AI supercomputer can deliver nearly four exaFLOPS of performance to more than 70 researchers. To put that into perspective, you’d have to perform one collection every second for 31 Billion 688 Million 765,000 Thousand years to match what one exaFLOP computer system can do in just 1 second, humans just don’t measure up.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Defeats Humans On Numerous Occasions
In fact, we’ve seen AI compete with humans and win on numerous occasions.
- In 2011, IBM’s AI-driven computer system named Watson competed against jeopardy greats such as Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. It won first place in the tournament and 1 million dollars.
- Another IBM Supercomputer Deep Blue went up against chess champion Gary Kasparov twice. The first match was played in 1996 and was won by Kasparov. But one year later Deep Blue won. The 1997 match marked the first defeat of a reigning World Chest champion by a computer under tournament conditions.
- Google’s AlphaGo, an AI computer program, defeated the reigning three-time European Go champion, Mr. Fan Hui in October 2015 with a score of five to zero.
- In March 2016, it beat Lee Sedol in a five-game match.
- At the 2017 Future of Go Summit, the Master version of AlphaGo beat Ke Jie, the number one ranked player in the world at the time.
- Google Deep Minds Alpha Star AI also beat Humans in the science fiction video game StarCraft 2. It placed within the top 0.15 percent of Europe’s 90,000 players. Amassing 61 wins out of 90 games.
- In a somewhat more high stake situation, an AI pilot won five consecutive rounds of simulated dogfight against a real Air Force pilot flying an F 16 Viper fighter jet in 2020. The fight was part of wider AI research by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The project began in 2019. It is part of the larger Air Combat Evolution Program. Darpa’s ultimate plan is to integrate AI and machine learning in unmanned drones, to work alongside Man fighter jets.
Despite these achievements, there are still benefits to using Humans over AI.
Limitation of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI has many limitations. It depends on the data we give it. If the system isn’t trained on the right amount of data or is trained on biased data sets, the AI itself will end up inaccurate or flawed. In fact, it’s estimated that through 2030, 85% of AI projects will provide false results caused by bias. AI is also incapable of human emotions. While AI can mimic certain human expressions, it doesn’t match the same social ability that humans have. AI can’t empathize, feel compassion, deal with the unknown, or assess social situations. And of course, it doesn’t feel fear. AI can’t match human levels of creativity, either. While certain AI artists have popped up over the years. They’re all trained in human work. Therefore, it takes actual human creativity for AI to be creative. Plus, sometimes AI systems just flat-out fail. IBM’s Watson has recommended unsafe cancer treatments for self-driving cars that killed pedestrians, and AI continues to be racially biased.
It’s clear that both AI systems and Humans have value. The goal shouldn’t be to replace Humans with AI. Augmenting human intelligence with AI working alongside AI technology and working to eliminate biases in the systems will be key to ensuring a successful future for both parties.
