Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI), as a popular topic, has been applied to all areas of modern life and there has been diverse ongoing research focusing on its various aspects. However, the developments of AI in different fields are quite imbalanced. Many experts have predicted that, in time, AI will exceed Human Intelligence (HI); however, there is no solid consensus among them. Moreover, the controversial issue of how to adequately define AI and HI has made it difficult to answer this question. This research collects, summarizes, and analyzes existing research on the theoretical basis of AI/HI and the developments of AI in different areas. Then, we discuss the possibilities that AI eventually replace humans in the job market. Finally, we divide AI into three types and discuss whether machines will ultimately surpass human beings or not.

Keywords: artificial intelligence, human intelligence, machine learning
