Here’s why it would be ‘unintelligent’ to build brain-like computer intelligence

iStock Artificial intelligence (AI) researchers are working hard to make computers smarter and more capable, some in hopes of achieving human-level intelligence. The surest strategy might seem like emulating human intelligence or even mimicking brain structure. But creating an intelligent machine based on the human mind might be impossible, unnecessary, or even counterproductive. In fact, many researchers believe what’s inside our heads is just one example of how to achieve intelligence — and not necessarily the best way. “An airplane flies in a way that’s very different from the way a bird flies, but they both fly — it’s the same thing with intelligence,” Peter Stone, an AI researcher and computer scientist at the University of Texas, Austin, told Tech Insider. Cornell University’s Bart Selman, also an AI researcher, used…
