Pattern recognition is what Ray Kurzweil calls the heart of human intelligence. “Ultimately, our machines will have equal and, in fact, even greater powers of pattern recognition,” he says.
He predicts as we reach a greater understanding of the brain, artificial intelligence will advance even more. “We’ll be able to essentially recreate the powers of human intelligence and combine them with the speed, accuracy and knowledge-sharing ability of machines.”
