With the rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, robots equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) are becoming more sophisticated and capable. , That is, the natural defense against the machines of successful professionals with talents such as creativity, motivation, emotion, ball games, and stage performances is also weakened.
Neurons are like hardware and the brain is like software. People often compare the human brain to a computer. The growth of artificial intelligence and the advent of anthropomorphic robots make this metaphor even more beautiful to look at.
However, Lisa Feldman-Barrett, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University in the United States, believes this similarity is problematic and may lead to misconceptions.
The difference between a living body and a machine
First, the memory of the human brain is a process and result of the continuous production of electrical pulses and rotating chemicals. The way computers store and process information is based on logic and machine learning procedures, at least not currently comparable to the human brain.
Second, the ability to recognize is one of the key components of artificial intelligence. For example, dandelion, AI can accurately identify this plant and identify it as dandelion by study; The human brain is different and can be classified according to its main function and role in different situations such as labeling with vegetables and labels for wildflowers. , Herbs, etc.
Feldman-Barrett said that the construction of this ad-hoc unit may be the basis of how the human brain works.
Finally, the human brain is part of the human body and is the central nervous system of the human body. It means the continuous coordination and balance of dozens of essential systems such as digestion, excretion, energy supply, resistance to disease, control of emotions and control of behavior.
An important difference between humans and machines is that humans have mental functions, but machines do not. At the heart of mental functioning is the control of the body’s brain.
Feldman-Barrett wrote: “All the thoughts you have ever had, all the ideas you have learned, all the emotions you have experienced, all that you have seen, heard, smelled and tasted. Everything you see or touch includes data about your physical condition. You will not experience your spiritual life in this way, but that is it.” What’s happening behind the scenes. “
An anthropomorphic robot is equipped with artificial intelligence, but if you want to think, feel, observe, or act like a human, you must have a complex system that can adjust and maintain the balance of similar parts of the body. Be a continuous interactive process.
Although today’s AI technology is close to this stage, human emotions and emotion-driven behaviors are still inaccessible to machines.
From another point of view, Peter Bentley, a computer scientist at University College London, said that for the next few hundred years, computers like the human brain would not appear and could still produce living colors and scents. The virtual world, and the increasingly complex artificial intelligence.
He is the author of “10 Lessons in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Digital Biology: How Nature Changes Our Technology and Life”.
While computers can mimic the universe, Bentley believes the latest advances in artificial intelligence show that it can mimic a super-intelligent human brain, with the simulated world and imitation brain being closer to reality in complexity, but at least the future, to reality.
He is“Science Focus” on the BBCWrites, why is it important for us to do this? Why imitate the whole universe or the super intelligent brain?
Super Artificial Intelligence of the Future Mankind is like a god, and mankind may not be able to understand or control what it chooses. Why create a virtual and omnipresent God for you?
From a technical point of view, according to Moore’s law, a computer chip has 2.6 trillion transistors, doubling the capacity of a computer every 20 months. At this speed, future computer processors will have powerful capabilities that are unimaginable today.
However, the formation of the universe took 13.8 billion years, and it may take billions of years before the imitation of this universe began to work.
Bentley believes that in the next few hundred years, humans will use limited resources to detect artificial gravity or quantum teleportation, instead of imitating the entire universe or the super-intelligent brain.
