Is intelligence artificial in Excellence?

The other day in the company of developers discussed the topic of artificial intelligence in the feature film "Excellence". During the discussion, we were divided into two groups:

  • The first is us, convinced that the artificial intelligence in the film was far from artificial;
  • The second - vehemently convinced of the opposite.

The article is not an object of continuing the debate and the search for truth, on the contrary, I would like to hear the opinions of other people about a more expanded model of understanding artificial and non-artificial intelligence and the definition, albeit thin, but the boundary between these concepts.

I propose to start from my own point of view in this matter.

What is intelligence?

I don’t see much reason to go deep, so I will start from the wording in the same Wikipedia.
Intelligence is the quality of the psyche, consisting of the ability to adapt to new situations, the ability to learn from experience, to understand and apply abstract concepts, and to use one’s knowledge to manage the environment. General ability to know and solve difficulties, which combines all the cognitive abilities of a person: sensation, perception, memory, representation, thinking, imagination.

Now let's move on to the concept of “Artificiality”

I did not find a clear statement of the term “Artificially”, so here we take synonyms for support: man-made and unnatural ( which are most suitable for this situation ), and antonyms: natural, natural, natural.

What do we get?

Artificial intelligence is a “mechanism” man-made by a person or a group of people ( possessing all the qualities listed above ), which by its nature is NOT natural, NOT natural and NOT natural.

In the film, the intellect, formed naturally in the course of a person’s life, was simply transferred to a computer. Thus, it turns out that scientists created only a platform for loading into it an already naturally-formed intellect, but did NOT artificially create this intellect.

Based on this, I do not quite agree with the wording of AI on Wikipedia:
Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) - the science and technology of creating intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. AI is associated with the similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence, but is not necessarily limited to biologically plausible methods.

Thus, if suddenly people nevertheless create a platform for loading human intelligence into it, then this intelligence will NOT be artificial, although it falls under the wording
“The creation of intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs”
- yes, such programs will be intelligent, but the intelligence in them will not be artificial. And I would call it, for example, Non-artificial machine intelligence.

Why don't I agree with the wording of AI on Wikipedia?

Because you can get an intelligent machine or an intelligent computer program without creating artificial intelligence, but simply downloading it directly from a person.

Yes, I agree that the platform will digitize human intelligence, but it will NOT be created, it will NOT be artificial, it will only be digitized or compiled and put into operation, and it will interact with computers through the created platform.

I believe that human intelligence remains human intelligence, regardless of the physical body.

but on the other hand

Now let's move on to another point of view, which is familiar to many people, the idea of ​​artificial intelligence.

One of the main arguments we were asked to consider is the process of converting human intelligence into a software model with a bias that after conversion, the intelligence will become artificial, i.e. after integrating consciousness into a computer, look at the result from a technical point of view.

It is also considered one of the important factors that it will cease to be the intelligence that it was in the human brain. And since the model of intelligence will change, they suggest that it be considered artificial.

One of the private definitions of intelligence, common to humans and "machines", can be formulated as follows:
“Intelligence is the ability of a system to create programs ( primarily heuristic ) for self-learning programs to solve problems of a certain complexity class and solve these problems”
- under this definition, the process of subsequent training ( after loading the intellect from outside to the computer ) is brought in , when the intellect continues to develop, but by the means of another physical body.


And what do you think, will intelligence be considered artificial if it is transferred from a person to a computer, and why?
