Artificial Intelligence versus Human Intelligence (foto Medium)
Is Human Intelligence Still Evolving?
There is no doubt that Human Intelligence will continue to evolve. And not just an External Evolution of building on acquired Knowledge, but a Physiological Evolution of the Brain and Cells. How it will evolve is harder to predict.
It’s also difficult to define what we mean by Human Intelligence. But for the purpose of this article, we’ll define it as the ability to receive, interpret and deliver Information.
It’s somewhat arrogant to assume that Humans have reached a plateau in their Physical Evolution; particularly when one considers that we have been physically evolving for the last two and half million years. In fact, the Evolution of Hominid Intelligence can be traced over its course for the past 10 million years, and attributed to specific environmental challenges.
We may no longer be so subjected to Charles Darwin’s Survival of the Fittest, which is still alarmingly prevalent amongst, say, cockroaches and rats, but we are heading into an unchartered Age of Genetic Manipulation, into an Age of Creation of the Fittest.
We look forward to your thoughts on how you think Human Intelligence will evolve.
