At the rate of progress we have seen with computer processing and Artificial Intelligence, cognitive computing will likely overtake human brainpower in our lifetimes.

I am looking forward to check out the newest Formal debate 1-1 format .

Arguments



  • Round 1 | Position: For
    I believe that cognitive computing will exceed human capability.  We already have many tasks that were automated by robots and AI is only beginning to take hold.  Rate of progress will be exponential, so while I don't think every activity will be better done by robots, many of activities we do today are likely will be.

  • Round 1 | Position: Against
    I accept the challenge and support Humans instead of computers.
    Computers lack creativity and many of the deductive reasoning skills we take for granted. Our brain is the most powerful computer based on biological neurons.  
  • Round 2 | Position: For
    @CuriousGeorge, thank you for accepting my debate.  
    The power of computer processing is always increasing and that's why I am giving it a 50 year window to catchup to the human brain.  Also, AI is based on distributed computing power, not just one computer

  • Round 2 | Position: Against
    I understand @agsr that the power will increase and will become more powerful.  However, computers will not have artistic skills and our brains are wired in a different way than computers. We will each be better in some things and worse in others
  • Round 3 | Position: For

    There is an interesting artcile on this topic

    I am not arguing and agreeing with you that it will be a mix of activities that humans will still be better at than us.  I am arguing that most of the activities we know today will be superceeded by robots.  We will have to stretch our cognitive advantage to focus things that robots cannot do as easily. 
    It can be a big opportunity for us to improve.

    Live Long and Prosper
  • Round 3 | Position: Against
    Looks like we both agree that it will be a mix. I disagree that “most” activities will be better by robots.
