AI is Essentially "Artificial Perception"


Human intelligence comes from an amazing duality of arriving at conclusions based on perception of patterns, and the contrary, conclusions based on very structured and rational decisions. Both forms are distinct, but complementary. Machine-based intelligence also comes in two forms: Deep learning based Artificial Intelligence interprets patterns in data to arrive at conclusions and hence, mimics the perception based intelligence of our brain whereas; and standard instruction-by-instruction computing (like in a PC) mimics the rational intelligence of our brain. I have always wondered why I can easily recall a song's tune, but not the words. I can remember a face better than the name.
