Research on the need to limit the progression of Artificial Intelligence to certain human tasks
that are only basic.
1. Can artificially intelligent robots be free to make correct and appropriate decisions?
2. Does artificial intelligence lack in terms of consciousness and making sense?
3. Is artificial intelligence dependable in all situations?
4. Is there then a limit to what artificial intelligence can help solve?
Artificial intelligence is computer programming that allows robots, droids, and androids
to perform tasks that human beings are mandated to do. It is important to curb to what extent
people allow the smart machines to intervene in their activities because artificial intelligence is
limited in decision making because the sensors they use cannot determine what are the most
appropriate actions to take, the artificial intelligence droids also lack in conscious and hence
have no human touch in whatever commands they undertake as robots again lack the emotional
feel that allows people to develop a human connection vital for human interactions.

This research paper offers insightful relations between those who think the brain of a
human brain being a computational working system and those who think otherwise, that the
brain involves more than computing information and goes to consciousness where there are
things that the brain needs to access and have intrinsic feeling that are innate and therefore are
not mathematical computations of received data e.g. the redness of a tomato can’t be computed
because it is intrinsic. Then sensations received by the brain are such intrinsic and maybe the
brain ha a different function than what can be achieved by the artificial intelligent droids.
This research paper is informational, but then it is argumentative. It seeks to discuss
whether artificial intelligence can match human intelligence. To me, this appears to be highly
valued in my research because the arguments provided fulfill the research questions sought by
my research. The information will provide the limitation of human intelligence which is what
this paper aims to identify by telling the extent.

This research paper provides most essentially information about the philosophical
attributes of artificial intelligence and what limitations there is to increasing intelligence in
machines. The research is extensive and covers the threats and promises that artificial
intelligence can offer.
