Artificial Intelligence Will Never Rival the Deep Complexity of the Human Mind

Colin Anderson via Getty Images The field of artificial intelligence has been a boom market almost from its beginning 60 years ago with the brilliant but doomed British mathematician Alan Turing. One branch of AI believes that a computer will one day duplicate how the human brain works, once the technical difficulties are worked out. Turing was more clever than that. He only asked that a computer’s responses convince a thinking mind. The famous Turing test was the cyber equivalent of, “If it quacks like a duck, it is a duck.” But is this really true? AI has taken us to the verge of an Orwellian dilemma, because the spectacular advantages offered by computers weigh so heavily and create such enormous optimism, it’s easy to overlook one flaw: AI isn’t…
