טכנולוגיה מול האדם

Technology in front of man

Who is smarter - you, or your computer? Or maybe the mobile device you are reading  This article? The answer is more complex. Computers are definitely skilled  Solving problems efficiently and quickly, while humans can perform  Tasks that machines simply cannot perform. Still.

Computers can process diverse and specific types of information much faster than us. They can filter, shuffle the data and perform complex calculations through their processors, to create multiple scenarios quickly on human. For example, the best computers trained in chess can at this point plan many moves ahead,  And better  Than the world chess champions. Computers learn much faster, reducing the most complex options. Yes, humans also learn from mistakes, but when it comes to dealing with  Problem solving and complex computer formulas.  We are usually planted on the road.

Today, computers can learn faster than humans, for example, the Watson robot (IBM) can  Read and remember all the studies on cancer, no one can.  With in-depth learning ability, Watson can also solve problems, for example, how to treat a rare strain of cancer - and does so. So in that sense, computers can be smarter than humans. "  Prof. Shlomo Meital, Senior Research Fellow at the Shmuel Ne'eman Institute at the Technion


On the other hand, humans are still superior to computers in many respects. We perform tasks, make decisions and solve problems based not only on  Our common sense, but also from our life experiences, intuition and emotion. Computers can be programmed and accessible to vast amounts of information, but they cannot experience life as we do. Humans have qualities  Which we sometimes refer to as creation, imagination and inspiration.  A person can write a song and sing it, compose and play, draw a painting or  To dream of the next invention that will change the world.

Computers enjoy other advantages over people. They have a good memory  More, they can be fed from a large amount of information, and they can  Utilize the whole thing almost instantly. Computers do not require sleep time like humans, so they can calculate, analyze and perform tasks around the clock. Despite the "bugs" or the sensitivity to power outages. They are not affected  Emotions, desires, needs and other factors that often obscure the ability to judge and make decisions. Computers can be programmed based on huge amounts  Of information, but they can not experience life as we do. "Computers can be programmed to duplicate some of these tasks, but they do not have the innate ability to create."


She is not an intelligence but thanks to her you can beat the best minds! "


But what if we run  The clock forward? Experts generally agree that tomorrow's computers will have some features that are visible today  humanity  only. The human brain has 86 billion neurons (nerve cells), which make connections between them,  To networks  Computers have far fewer cells, but one day, computers will reach the level of complexity and sophistication of the human brain. All this is expected to come sooner than we think. "Once we crack the neurocode that activates our brain, I believe we can artificially replicate this structure so that we can truly create a life with true artificial intelligence," says Prof. Meital. "I can definitely see that happening in the next century." Some people, like computer scientist Ray Kurzweil and Tesla founder Elon Musk  Be warned of the possible dangers of artificial intelligence  Predicted the machines of the future which  They will destroy humanity. We definitely need to be with our finger on the pulse when it comes to  For artificial intelligence, when we  Control the machines and not the other way around.
