Abstract: Many accounts describe and define human intelligence. Some common abilities include: learning solving problems, creating innovative solutions, remembering details, etc. Artificial intelligence (AI) has fewer descriptions and definitions, including these: performing things normally done by experienced humans, or assisting less experienced persons go perform well. We have learned a great deal in the last 50 years about both human intelligence and artificial intelligence. Researchers now believe there are billions of neurons in the brain and mapping how people use those neurons to react to situations and solve problems is an area of active exploration with many unknowns. Human intelligence has not progressed on a scale or order of magnitude to match the progress in AI. How things will both evolve? Will AI evolve to support humans including the development of human intelligence, or is there a darker path ahead? This article aims to cause focused deliberations going forward.

Keywords: creativity; artificial intelligence; human intelligence; intelligence; problem solving.
