While the physical basis of natural intelligence is the human brain, the physical basis of artificial intelligence (AI) is constituted by computers. Currently, the processes of creating AI based on computer technology are developing in two main directions — logical direction and neuromorphic one. The logical approach is aimed at creating computer systems designed to solve one or a limited set of “intelligent” problems (that is, problems whose solution would require intelligence if they were solved by a person). The neuromorphic approach aims to create computer systems that imitate the human brain functioning, and ultimately to create its artificial analogue.

Artificial Intelligence: Whither Goest Thou?

Biblical phrase “Quo vadis”, which means “where are you going,” was not accidentally put into the title of the article, because today some people consider artificial intelligence to be almost a kind of messiah who will save our world from all evils and adversities, while others believe that he is akin to the Horseman of the Apocalypse, who will completely destroy human civilization and turn all of us into machines’ slaves. The article analyses substantiation of these judgments.
