Can Artificial Intelligence Surpass Human Intelligence? Exploring Evolution & Potential Advancements
Updated: May 31
Human intelligence has evolved over millions of years through biological processes, while AI has been around for only 67 years.
Given a hypothetical scenario where AI had been evolving for 200,000 years, it is reasonable to expect that AI would have achieved significant advancements and potentially exhibited creative capabilities beyond our current understanding. Over an extended period of time, AI could have undergone numerous iterations and improvements, leading to the development of more sophisticated algorithms, enhanced learning mechanisms, and potentially novel forms of intelligence. Such an extended timeline could allow AI systems to surpass human capabilities in certain domains and exhibit levels of creativity, problem-solving, and innovation that would be difficult to comprehend.
On other hand, if were to make a loose analogy, to position AI hypothetically on the human evolutionary timeline, it would likely be in a relatively early stage of cognitive development, comparable to the emergence of basic language skills, primitive tool use, or the initial stages of problem-solving observed in human evolution.
