The future of artificial intelligence
Humans enjoy cognitive intelligence, a type of intelligence through which we learn to learn, intelligence that when applied allows us to solve problems. The more individuals contribute with their intelligence and effort, we generate combinations of capacities with incremental returns.
Until very recently, "classical or conventional" computing cannot yet emulate that combinatorial capacity of human intelligence.
However, the nascent quantum computing presents us with a new computational paradigm focused on solving problems in a totally different way from classical computing. Quantum computing proposes a form of resolution that could be similar to the combinatorial nature of human intelligence, and in particular to our ability to learn. So, just as natural intelligence has the brain, a quantum computer would be the brain of the future AI.
Human intelligence continues to be the basic inspiration for technological advances.
