Reasons I feel that AI will take over human intelligence are :

Technology is never deterministic. It opens various technical, social and political doors.

Nuclear technology is a very efficient alternative for non-renewable energy resources. But still, we chose to move ahead with more and more types of nuclear warhead. Same is the case with almost every other invention. Similarly, though initially AI promised better lives for us, but because of AI, we have started losing our basic human qualities.

The huge data we produce every day is analysed and fed into our devices through algorithms that we end up giving more and more control of our lives to the gadgets. We may feel that we receive all these services for free, but they come at the cost of our precious time and attention.

We have started losing our basic human habits and instincts, and are actually governed by the devices and apps.

  • For example, let’s take Google Maps. We just feed the starting point and the destination, and it shows us the path and we follow that without thinking. Though 95% times it shows the best route but we have given up our thinking and decision-making abilities for this activity, which wasn’t the case earlier.
  • Similarly, with all the data and algorithm our apps and gadgets, without our conscious knowledge, are making decisions for us. Decision making is (was) one of the qualities that made humans different from others.
  • In the US, a robot carried out better and quicker surgery than a human doctor and was also displaying various data regarding the present stage and future possibilities simultaneously which is out of scope for a human doctor.
  • China is leading in the development of driverless cars and autonomous cars are giving better results than human driven cars.
  • Our planes have been flying on autopilot modes and with time the autopilots are getting better and better.
  • There are various other examples where the machines have been replacing humans, doing better, and depriving humans of their basic qualities or are on their way to do so.
  • Some people do argue that humans have an emotional side which can’t be substituted by any machine. But for them I have a two-point counter argument:
    • Since machines don’t have an emotional side, their decisions/solutions won’t be affected by some family problems at home, fights with a spouse or bad grades of a child which are very likely to affect human decisions at times.
    • People are losing their emotional sides. After a daily 10-hour shift from Monday to Friday most of us prefer to stay at home on the holidays. We surround ourselves with laptop, TV, mobile and use them in cycles for Netflix, sports, social media etc. (thinking that we are relaxing) rather than going out. We prefer and are more comfortable with online chatting instead of talking to people for real. There are less meaningful relationships nowadays because of all the above factors. We have started preferring isolation.

Conclusion :-

No big change in the history of mankind has taken place instantly. Everything has evolved over a long period of time without any idea of what is actually happening as we consider the very small changes as natural or development. Similarly, this change will also not happen instantly but if don’t become conscious of our daily activities AI is inevitable and will completely take over us probably in the next 200 years.

    If the topic is “can the Artificial Intelligence replace human intelligence?” certainly not.
    but can it replace the task done by human ? the answer is 100% Yes…
    But can an individual with human brain be replaced with AI – 100% possible in the very near future hardly a decade. At the same time the person is not 100% be an independent individual as long as he is going to controlled by some coding formulas….

    Do not think AI as your omnipotent enemy but a friend to help us in the time of need.

    Human made Artificial intelligence
    So, how can artificial intelligence replace human intelligence

    • M IJAZ MAYo, Nov 10, 2021 @ 12:31 pm Reply

      human made A.T.M machines etc they have replaced humans for sure is it not? no doubt humans made machines but humans can make mistakes make errrors but machines not bcz they are designed by algorithm not by emotions

    In my point of view human intelligence is better than artificial intelligence because artificial intelligence as a working of instrument but human intelligence always working on other types things and human intelligence is a long period but artificial intelligence make a instrument not moving the days

    Yes, I feel that AI can definitely overtake us. Firstly as you pointed out that they are machines who are not influenced by any emotional upsets and are working better than us and more efficiently. They are slowly taking over the basic skills that make us human. But at the same time I would say that it is ultimately us , that is the human brain that has created AI. How can the creation overtake the creator? The human brain will keep on evolving and getting better as it creates more ways for easier solutions to problems in life.

      yes I agree with your point but not every human mind is a developer. there are only some group of people are creator in this field

    my perspectives the machines not replace the human activity,intelligence. but now human will be depending on the machine also, so this will be reduced . human can think ,plan,and create anything, but machines will work to the only whenever want to some things and asking any helps that time will be working.but human being not like that whenever want to some things and face the any problem that time always help them . human have a emotions,feelings and helping nature , now a days all the people depends on the artificial intelligence this is reduced.

    Now a days we can see every electronic gadget is upgrading to AI support we record our habit and produce result according to it which i think good at some point of time but as we all know it is a machine which is based on certain algorithm which can be manipulated and misused, which is not easy in the case of human being as all human beings are not corrupt. We all remember koi mil gaya dialogue, ” insaan ne computer ko banaya hai computer ne insaan ko nhi” so i think everyone can understand who is more powerful

    As mentioned in this post, AI will surely take over basic human qualities which god has given us,if dont become aware. I agree, its we human beings who have given life to robots which perform in much better way. Everything is good only when it lies within the limit. So, its time for us to wake up, realise and make sure that we unconsciously dont become slaves to AI.

    • Team GD Ideas, Jun 9, 2019 @ 4:04 pm Reply

      Yes, Swetha. We need to take steps to prevent being enslaved by technology.

    In my views human beings are given such a creative intelligence that it cannot be replaced by an artificial intelligence.. so because artificial things such as a machine or a robot is created by humans through their intellectual powers. It is now clear that humans only has created robot and fitted such a instrument in it I.e., power to think.. so human intelligence is best✌️
