– Strong AI is a theoretical form of artificial intelligence which supports the view that machines can really develop human intelligence and consciousness in the same way that a human in conscious. Strong AI refers to a hypothetical machine that exhibits human cognitive abilities. Weak AI (also known as narrow AI), on the other hand, is a form of artificial intelligence that refers to the use of advanced algorithms to accomplish specific problem solving or reasoning tasks that do not encompass the full range of human cognitive abilities.
– Functions are limited in weak AI as compared to strong AI. Weak AI does not achieve self-awareness or demonstrate a wide range of human cognitive abilities that a human may have. Weak AI refers to systems that are programmed to accomplish a wide range problems but operate within a pre-determined or pre-defined range of functions. Strong AI, on the other hand, refers to machines that exhibit human intelligence. The idea is to develop artificial intelligence to the point where human interact with machines that are conscious, intelligent and driven by emotions and self-awareness.
– The goal of weak AI is to create a technology that allows allows machines and computers to to accomplish specific problem solving or reasoning tasks at a significantly quicker pace than a human can. But it does not necessarily incorporate any real world knowledge about the world of the problem that is being solved. The goal of strong AI is to develop artificial intelligence to the point where it can be considered true human intelligence. Strong AI is a type of which does not exist yet in its true form.
