Artificial Intelligence vs Human Intelligence: Will AI be ever able to replace humans?

There is a fear among many whether AI will replace humans in the future, given its incredible potential to replicate human capabilities with remarkable accuracy.

In recent years, the world has witnessed a tremendous growth in the field of artificial intelligence.  There is no denying in that artificial intelligence is capable of doing various tasks that were once found cumbersome to do manually. After the incoming of AI, instead of happiness a new fear has gripped the human beings. Stephen Hawking once remarked, "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race" shall be the case?

Let’s dive into this article and try to figure it out

1.                Enhancement of human capabilities:  One great example where AI has shown an immense promise in augmenting human capabilities is healthcare. In one of their articles AIIMS, Rishikesh wrote, ““AI in medicine can be dichotomised into two subtypes: Virtual and physical.  The virtual part ranges from applications such as electronic health record systems to neural network-based guidance in treatment decisions. The physical part deals with robots assisting in performing surgeries, intelligent prostheses for handicapped people, and elderly care.”  Although there being a fear that AI might replace healthcare professionals, an article published by Harvard Medical School states that, “It's unlikely that AI will completely replace physicians anytime soon.” The human aspects of care, compassion, critical thinking, and complex decision-making, are invaluable in providing holistic patient care beyond diagnosis and treatment decisions.


2.                AI in creative fields: The incoming of AI might be regarded as a threat is the field of creative arts. Algorithms used by artificial intelligence have become capable enough to generate music compositions, lyrics and even an artist’s voice. Examples of this are many cover songs and originals on YouTube. Notable amongst them is the AI-generated album "Hello World" by Taryn Southern, where she collaborated with AI to compose and produce music. But if AI can completely make the creative arts people jobless is still a question to ponder upon.


3.                AI in customer service: Chatbots driven by AI and virtual assistants are revolutionising customer service. They are providing immediate support and resolving inquiries of the customers efficiently. Companies like Amazon and Google employ AI-powered virtual assistants like Alexa and Google assistant to interact with the users, answer questions and perform tasks. This might disrupt customer service jobs.



4.                AI in education: AI technologies are reshaping the field of education by personalising learning experiences and providing students with tailored support. Adaptive learning platforms, such as Duolingo or Khan Academy, use AI algorithms to analyse students' performance and adapt the learning content accordingly. Still, if experts are to be believed, AI will never be able to take place of teachers in regard to understanding the students, addressing their problems and resolving them.


AI has been a great tool in assisting humanity in a variety of ways. But the question is how long is this going to go on for? If AI were to grow unprecedentedly and with a lack of vigilance, the imminent danger it presents to various job opportunities can also not be ignored.
