Chapter Summary

Many questions can be asked that relate to machine intelligence versus human intelligence. Since a number of decades there exists the field of "artificial intelligence", as a discipline within computer science. This chapter briefly describes the goal of artificial intelligence (AI) and some key problems. The principal idea was that intelligence can be formalized in a way that computers and computer-based machines may become intelligent like humans. In order to provide an overview of what so-called intelligent technical systems are capable of today, examples of various contemporary solutions are presented. To explain how the intelligent behaviour of the presented examples have been realised, selected scientific approaches in the field of AI are presented and their limits are discussed. Finally, a conclusion is presented that may be considered as partial answers to the question: Can intelligent technical systems surpass human skills?

Keywords: artificial intelligence; computer-based machines; human intelligence; human skills; intelligent technical systems
