Is AI clever? What sort of intelligence do humans have that AI can’t yet replicate?

AI, or artificial intelligence, can be very clever in the sense that it can analyze vast amounts of data, make predictions, learn from past outcomes, and perform tasks more quickly and accurately than a human. It can simulate certain aspects of human intelligence such as problem-solving skills and understanding language to a certain extent.

However, AI today generally lacks the ability to fully replicate some types of human intelligence. These include:

  1. Emotional Intelligence: Humans are capable of experiencing emotions, understanding the emotional states of others, and responding appropriately. AI cannot genuinely experience emotions, nor grasp the full nuances of human emotions.
  2. Creative Intelligence: Humans have the ability to invent, form unique ideas, think abstractly, and appreciate art, music, and literature. While AI can generate art or music based on existing patterns, it doesn’t truly understand or appreciate what it has created in the same way a human would.
  3. Social Intelligence: Humans use this to interact well with others, interpret social cues, and understand the roles and relationships within a group. AI struggles with these nuanced, subtle types of interactions.
  4. Intuition: Humans often make decisions based on a ‘gut feeling’ or intuition, which is knowledge that hasn’t sprung from conscious thought. As of now, AI lacks this ability to make judgments based on anything other than data and predefined algorithms.
  5. Self-awareness and Consciousness: Humans have a sense of self and can reflect on their own thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Current AI does not possess a consciousness or a subjective experience.
  6. General Intelligence: Humans can apply learned knowledge and skills to new situations that are different from the ones they learned. Current AI systems are still largely task-specific, i.e., they are trained for and excel at specific tasks but struggle to transfer learned skills and knowledge to different areas.

It’s also important to note that AI’s reasoning and decision-making are based on algorithms and patterns in the data it has been fed, so it can be limited by the quality and breadth of this data. This is different from human intelligence, which is shaped by a broad multitude of experiences, thoughts, emotions, and interactions.
