Artificial Intelligence vs. Human Intelligence

Artificial intelligence refers to machines or systems capable of imitating human intelligence using entered information, data, and commands to carry out tasks. It is used in almost all sectors today, including IT, computer systems, web software, and the defense industry.


In the aftermath of the Second World War, when encrypted messages had to be analyzed, systems frequently utilized artificial intelligence. Electromechanical devices could decode the encrypted messages of enemy elements through algorithms and schemes. We can observe superior features like perception, learning, analysis, and functionality throughout these systems.


Many brands today, such as Tesla, Microsoft, Google, and Twitter, can be cited as examples of how artificial intelligence is being used. The system, software, or machines that makeup Artificial Intelligence (AI) are incorporated into all electronic devices, including smartphones, computers, and calculators. Features like the ability to self-learn, analyze, and perform tasks are available daily. Even coffee machines and printers can meet our needs using specific software and artificial intelligence. It can be said that, in summary, these systems and software today can easily be seen in almost all of the things that we use in our daily lives.


Many of us are confused about the question: What is its primary purpose? Technology and development facilitate many daily lives and take on extraordinary tasks. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence has emerged to automate and facilitate human intelligence-intensive tasks. Due to machines and systems with this feature, the workload has been reduced, and even mechanisms that operate at a lower rate than human intelligence have been developed.


However, can artificial intelligence one day surpass human intelligence and become a danger to humans? The power of something developed by human intelligence will exceed that of humans. After learning something from a master, you eventually leave the master behind.


Stephen Hawking was also a part of this discussion. In a BBC interview, Stephen Hawking spoke about the advantages of fast word prediction in the new version of his speech system (the computer can make predictions about the next word based on the statistics of what Hawking has said in the past). Referring to the fact that computers can have an effect that will accelerate the development of computers, Hawking expressed concerns similar to those of people who have worked in artificial intelligence:


“The day humans fully invent artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence will also have the ability to take control and redesign itself. This could lead to the extinction of humans.”


Now, if we go back a bit in time, Alan Turing, the founder of computer science, asked a similar question in 1950: "Can machines think?"


While the concept called “technological singularity” was introduced by Ray Solomonoff, one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence, in 1967, Solomonoff also warned:


“Before AI happens, many intelligent people worldwide need to research the possible outcomes because it may be too late by the time AI does. Although there is currently no prediction that artificial intelligence will exist shortly, the ability of machines to think will happen all at once and very quickly.”


For many people, artificial intelligence was nothing more than an absurd science fiction element until a few years ago. However, with advancing technology, we have heard more about artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence, which has started to take place in almost every area of our lives, is likely to be difficult for people who are not directly related to the subject.


But nowadays, people don't take AI very seriously. This is because we think artificial intelligence thrives only in movies and is limited to common technological devices such as phones and computers. We are often not even aware that we are using artificial intelligence. We must be aware that artificial intelligence exists in movies and our real lives and is used extensively in various areas.
