One can perhaps understand better human intelligence by comparing it with the “intelligence” of computers. There are differences between them:

Intelligence can be defined different ways such as specie’s capacity to reason, understand, and be self-aware, learn, possess emotional knowledge, plan, create and solve problems. Generally, it can be further defined as being able to perceive information, and to retain it as knowledge to be applied towards adaptive behaviours within an environment or context. Intelligence is mostly studied in humans, but has also been observed animals and in plants. Artificial intelligence is intelligence in machines. It is mostly implemented in computer systems using program software.
Artificial intelligence is the branch of computer science concerned with making computers behave like humans. The term was coined in 1956 by John McCarthy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
According to Britannica, human intelligence is the mental quality that consists of the abilities to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, understand and handle abstract concepts, and use knowledge to manipulate one’s environment.
Due to recent progress of machines and the grotesque features that have been

Although artificial Intelligence has moved forward in the last few years, it is totally different from human intelligence. The inventors of artificial intelligence think that once computers possess adequately developed algorithms, they will be able to amplify, and then replicate, the mind of a human being but this idea is false. These computer advocates ignore perhaps the most special and unique characteristic of man; which is their ability to create things with conscious effort. Human beings cannot only create concepts, ideas and business models, every human cell can re-create itself but no machine, no matter how advanced, can perform this
