Human Intelligence: The Field Of Artificial Intelligence

Good Essays
Artificial intelligence is the intelligence showed by mechanisms or software that pretends to simulate the human intelligence. It’s also the field of computer science that has the goal of creating devices that simulate the human intelligence, such as the rational ability (applying rules based on logic to an available data so we can reach a conclusion), learning (learn with mistakes and solutions in a way to react more efficiently in the future), recognize patterns (such as visual and sensory patterns and behavior patterns) and inference (capacity of applying reasoning in situations of everyday life).
Artificial Intelligence is often, but not always, about simulating human intelligence. Sometimes we can learn about how to make machines solve

This field of study is defined as the study and project of intelligent agents, being the intelligent agent defined as a system that understands the surrounding environment and makes decisions in a way to maximize is probability of success.
The main goal of the intelligent agents is to execute functions that would be considered clever if it was a human executing them.
It’s a science that, on one hand, has a goal: to analyze and understand better the manifestations of intelligence. On the other hand, it is also a field of engineering, because it also has the goal of creating agents that support the human intellect. For example, the computers are programmed to represent the human knowledge.

More frequently now than ever, the researchers try to understand how the human thought is processed, in a way to translate it to computer language.

It’s main goal is to be capable of solving any problem that a human mind would also be able to solve and it should think for itself and know that it does so. A program like this would be cognitively comparable to the human mind.

b) The weak AI
Weak AI studies mostly non-deterministic problems (problems that have different solutions based on the way they are executed) and bases itself on AI that is not actually capable of reasoning and it isn’t really “smart” it just behaves like it is.

B. Turing’s Test – The ingelligence test
The Turing Test is a test created by the British mathematician Alan Turing in a 1950 paper entitled “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” whose objective was to determinate if a computer program is “intelligent” or not. The test consists in having two or more humans and a computer in a conversation, all of them isolated and the program would be considered intelligent if one (or several) judges cannot tell for sure that one of the conversations participants is a
