Volume, speed, and diversity are three main components of the Big Data information processing method that is gaining popularity presently. Will artificial intelligence be able to replace human mind in processing information? The experts of WFYS 2017 talked about this problem at Big Data: Revolution panel discussion.
“The most powerful computer as of today is human mind,” started his speech on artificial intelligence Eric Mannens, Professor at Skolkovo scientific research laboratory. The speaker emphasized that even in the age of digital information, artificial intelligence takes the lead in solving problems of global science and technology.
“We try to teach artificial intelligence to process giant bodies of information that in 2 or 3 years each of you will use on your smartphones, but without human control it undermines our security,” clarified Mannens.
Evgeny Rossinsky, Service Technology Director at IVI company, did his best to answer the question: “What is Big Data: new oil or weapon of the future?” “We taught the machines to process, systematize and analyze information selling desired popular content to our users, but over the coming years, computers will not replace human intellect entirely,” he believes.
“Don’t we pay for our own degradation by purchasing smart gargets?” asked a student from Khakassia region. Nikolay Pavlochev, Director on Acronis academic programs, gave the following answer: “Smart gargets help us solve complicated problems as well as achieve the best result within the shortest time possible. It is up to you, if you decide to degrade in the process of interaction with smart gargets. You can watch entertaining videos on the way home or, for example, take online courses on computer programming and acquire valuable skills. Undoubtedly, the result depends on your choice.”
The bottom line of the discussion was the idea that artificial intelligence is just complementing the natural intelligence, which allows for modern people to develop art, science and other spheres. However, there are still no analogues to the human brain beyond the “living mind.”
