Are Computers More Intelligent Than Us?

- Are computers more intelligent than us.  Introduction The definition of intelligence is quite hard as there are many different aspects including it like emotional, social, logical, creative and practical. Intelligence can be described as the ability to perceive and retain information and apply it to all instances of knowledge, creating understandable modules of any size or complexity. This is also the skill that makes us humans so much different from all other living species on Earth. Due to this very general mental capability we can plan, solve problems, reason, think abstractly, think of complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience....   [tags: Computer, Artificial intelligence, Alan Turing]

Computers And Computer Software That Are Capable Of Intelligent Behavior

- Who would have guessed that the once mere concept of artificial intelligence (AI) could actually be a reality in the year 2015. Artificial intelligence is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software. It is also the name of the academic field of study which studies how to create computers and computer software that are capable of intelligent behavior. But we can go even deeper into the topic and question: really what defines intelligence.

Artificial Inteligence in John Searle’s paper: Minds, Brains, and Programs

It has become one of modern philosophy’s (and broadly, cognitive science’s) most disputed and discussed pieces due to the nature of the argument presented in the paper. In said paper, John Searle sought, or should I say, seeks, to dispute the claim that artificial intelligence in the form of computers and programs do, or at the most basic level, could (one day), think for their synthetic selves; essentially it’s a refutation of the idea that computers or programs can actually “understand” in the same way that a human can....   [tags: Robots, Computers, Programs]

The Theories Of Intelligence By Robert Sternberg 's Theory Of Multiple Intelligences

- For the concept of intelligence, Robert Sternberg’s “Triarchic Theory of Successful Intelligence” and Gardner’s “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” were focused on for this particular self-assessment. Sternberg’s theory of intelligence divides total intelligence into analytic, creative and practical components (Woolfolk 117). According to Sternberg, analytical intelligence involves “the mental processes of the individual that lead to more or less intelligent behavior”, creative intelligence involves “coping with new experiences”, and practical intelligence involves emphasizing “the importance of choosing an environment in which you can succeed, adapting to that environment, and reshaping it i...   [tags: Intelligence, Theory of multiple intelligences]

Intelligence And The Intelligence Of Intelligence

- Intelligence Redefined It’s a bright, beautiful day outside. Birds are cawing, dogs are barking, and children are yelling as they chase each other around. My friend KC, however, is not outside enjoying this weather, but instead is inside playing video games. Why is this. Is he lazy. Maybe it’s too hot for him. Maybe the bugs eat him up when he goes outside. When asked about his choice of staying inside and playing video games versus going outside, he wryly replied, “This is what I’m good at and I enjoy it.” Therein lies the essence of intelligence: recognizing what you are proficient at and using these proficiencies in a way that benefits you in some way....   [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences]

A Measure of Intelligence

- Why is it that certain people within our society are intellectually gifted while others are not. It would seem that since we as humans are of the same species, we would have a very comparable intelligence level, and yet IQ test scores for 99 percent of the population range clear from “barely functioning” fifty-five to “Einstein” 145 (based on the Wechsler IQ test). Perhaps our perception is a little skewed. Maybe everyone is more similar intellectually than limited IQ tests can discern.

- There are many thoughts and theories when it comes to learning styles. The Theory of Multiple Intelligences is one such idea that could potentially assist adult learners if fully understood and accurately utilized. It is important to note that the many theories out there about learning styles and multiple intelligences are just that, theories.

The Theory Of Multiple Intelligences

- Albert Einstein once said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” In 1983, when Howard Gardner introduced the idea of multiple intelligences in his book titled, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, the understanding and acceptance that everyone learns and behaves in different ways was displayed. It is 2015, and I am now just learning Howard Gardner’s idea. That is, that, there is nine different intelligences....   [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences, Intelligence]

The Theory Of The Multiple Intelligence Theory

- The multiple intelligence theory is based on eight different intelligences which reflect a person 's intellectual ability. This model of intelligence challenges other theories such as the General Intelligence Theory created by Charles Spearman. Spearman’s theory focuses on a person 's ability to perform efficiently while being tested as well as their general cognitive capability. The MI theory differs due to the fact that it explores how test scores are not necessarily accurate representations of the amount of knowledge a person possesses because it has been demonstrated through this theory and experimental research that human beings are not necessarily less intellectually capable if they do...   [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences, Intelligence]

Analysis of the Elements of the Intelligence Cycle

- Minor Assignment • Analyse the elements of the ‘Intelligence Cycle’. What are its core strengths and weaknesses. Before I begin to analyse the elements of the Intelligence Cycle, I must begin with the definition of ‘Intelligence’. Throughout my research, it became apparent that the acceptance for an accurate definition of ‘Intelligence’ is still an issue to date. One reason could be because experts tend to view ‘intelligence’ through their own specialty, and would be fair to say that this could possibly be because officers within the intelligence community do not have strong bridges connecting them to each other or to policy makers, which would therefore enhance communication and sharing...   [tags: Intelligence]

Often, people try to use related words to define intelligence, but these words are unable to define intelligence since many are only different levels of intelligence....   [tags: Intelligence]
