A.I. Smart or Dumb?


AI has focussed on algorithms for robots to mimic human behaviour. Imitation is prevalent for young children, but for teenagers and adults much learning is by trial and error, insight and critical thinking. They solve problems, make comparisons, judge situations, synthesise and create. AI would have to recognise what situation to imitate with its algorithm, without dumbing itself out of business. If you want smarts, use a human.
