  • New Huawei study explores the parallels between the human brain and Artificial Intelligence

    Global technology company Huawei launched the findings of their study on the similarities between the human brain and Artificial Intelligence, which reveals that the average European is unaware of 99.74% of the actual decisions they make every day.

    Walter Ji, President, Huawei Western Europe Consumer Business Group comments, “The research shows how human intelligence works just like Artificial Intelligence, operating in the background to empower us in everything we do. While revealing a significant gap between the number of decisions we believe we make every day and the actual number we make, the results also shed light on other discrepancies between how we think we spend our time, and how we actually spend it.”

    The research also revealed how people would like their smartphones to help with decisions and make their lives easier, with 43% saying they would like automatic notifications about travel. Some 39% said they would like help learning new languages, 38% would like help with taking better photos and 31% would like to be shown new music artists that they might like. Respondents could choose more than one option, which is why the total amounts to more than 100%.

    The results also showed that people on average guessed that they checked their phones 22 times a day, we glance at our mobile devices a staggering 76 times a day3. And while we think we make an average of just 3.1 decisions when making a cup of tea, we actually make an incredible 654.

    Walter Ji, President, Huawei Western Europe Consumer Business Group, Huawei comments, “At Huawei, we developed the Kirin 970 AI chip to usher in a new era of intelligent smartphones that work in the background to make our lives easierand empower us to make better, more informed decisions. Making its debut in the Huawei Mate 10 series, the Kirin AI processor is engineered to understand how you use your phone, enabling it to predict its most efficient mode, optimise performance to keep the phone in prime condition and deliver all-round greater efficiency, with more power, at higher speeds”.

    Paul Dolan, Professor of Behavioural Science in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science, comments “the results really shine a light on the amazing power and potential of the human brain and AI technology. AI mimics the human brain’s unconscious decision-making, which is why it has huge potential to improve human decision making and happiness.”

    The research, which was carried out in November 2017 by Lightspeed Research, on behalf of Huawei, features respondents from ten countries: UK, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Switzerland, Belgium and France. It is nationally representative by age, gender and region.
