Why does human intuition beat artificial intelligence?

Scientists have been able to develop artificial intelligence (AI) capable of besting humans at their own games, but a new study suggests that people may have the upper hand when it comes to intuitive thinking.A team of researchers led by Denmark’s Aarhus University associate professor Jacob Sherson managed to develop a game based around complex theoretical science in which human players were “able to find solutions to difficult problems associated with the task of quantum computing,” whereas computerized numerical optimization failed, according to the scientists’ findings published in Nature.”The big surprise we had was that some of the players actually had solutions that were of higher quality and of shorter duration than any computer algorithms could find,” Mr. Sherson told the Associated Press.The game, Quantum Moves, is available online for…
