Artificial Intelligence vs The Human Brain

In the run-up to Manchester’s Brain Box event which will showcase pioneering science around the workings of the brain we ask the question ‘will machines with artificial intelligence ever outperform the human brain?’ In response computing pioneer Professor Steve Furber shares his views on why no machine has been clever enough to succeed at the Turing test – but says there is still much to play for in understanding how intelligence works.In his seminal 1950 paper, Computing Machinery and Intelligence Alan Turing began by considering the question: “Can machines think?” He then went on to suggest that this question is difficult to answer directly, and he turned it around into a research experiment that he called ‘The Imitation Game’, but which subsequent generations simply known as the Turing test for…
