Human vs machine intelligence:
How they differ and what this implies for our future society
To be able to predict the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the required human competences of the future, it is first
and foremost necessary to get an overview of what AI at all is and how it differs from human intelligence. The main goal
of this paper is to provide such an overview to readers who are not experts in the area. The focus of the paper is on the
similarities and differences between human and machine intelligence, since understanding that is of essential importance
to be able to predict which human tasks and jobs are likely to be automatised by AI - and what consequences it will have.
