Artificial Integrity

Artificial Intelligence may be the most evocative, but also the most scientifically inaccurate term given by scientists to name a scientific field.

Firstly, it suggests that we already have such knowledge of the human intelligence spectrum that we are able to recreate it all, artificially. In reality, it is an artificial limited intelligence that we have.

Secondly, it often implies the belief that these so-called "intelligent" systems are indeed intelligent. Beyond the utopian projections often stemming from science fiction imagination, these are just systems with advanced computational capabilities, rather than intelligent.

Also, it presupposes the viability of the hypothesis that the said intelligence of these systems can be compared to human intelligence, possibly leading to the psychosis of replacing human intelligence with machines. It's as if we are viewing ourselves solely in a purely mechanized transposition, denying the very essence of what makes us human, and how far these systems are distinct from the comprehensive cognitive and emotional capacities associated with human intelligence.

Finally, it exacerbates an almost ideological quest of humans to surpass terrestrial and biological limits, in the pursuit of ultimate intelligence, whether it is called AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) or something else. Let's not be mistaken: replicating human intelligence is replicating an essential part of what makes us human. Calling this AGI should not make us lose sight of the boundary with any form of reproductive cloning.

Intelligence is one of the world's most known catch-all words.
