 The human brain, consisting of roughly 86 billion neurons, rivals the world’s best supercomputers in
terms of magnitude, efficiency, and speed, using as little energy as a small 20-watt light bulb. Human
evolution took tens of thousands of years to adapt noticeable brain size and architecture changes.
                     
Evolution is a slow process that can take eons for changes to occur. Technology, on the other hand,
is amazing in terms of how fast it is moving along, blending into the world seamlessly. The
technological evolution notably occurs at a faster pace compared to biological evolution.
 
To further understand the situation, imagine a frog in a pot of water that heats up 1/10th of a degree
Celsius every ten seconds. Even if the frog remained in that water for, say an hour, it would be unable
to feel the minute changes in temperature. However, if the frog is dropped into boiling water, the
change is too sudden and the frog jumps away to avoid fate.





Let's take a gigantic chessboard and a grain of rice, for scale, and place each grain of rice to a
corresponding chess square following a sequence: for each passing square, we double the amount.
Upon applying this, we get:
 
1) 1
2) 2
3) 4
4) 8
 
And so on. You must be thinking, “What difference does doubling a grain of rice for every box
make?” But one must remember that, at some point, the number from which the count started will
be totally indistinguishable to the end result. Still on the 41th square, it contains a mountainous 1
trillion grains of rice pile.
 
41) 1,099,511,627,776
 
What started out as a measly amount, barely feeding a single ant, has become massive
enough to feed a city of 100,000 people for a year.





The development of technology over time
 
In the year 1959, the global output of transistor production of 60 million was huge. It was deemed a
manufacturing achievement to produce such an amount. Although looking at the world today, it
pales because of how far the transistor development has come. A modern i7 Skylake processor
contains around

1,750,000,000 transistors. It would take 29 years of 1959’s transistor global production to match
one i7 Skylake transistor count.

The transistor manufacturing size in an i7 Skylake processor is 14 nm. For reference, a silicon atom
is about 0.1176 nm across: 14/0.1176=119 Meaning, a transistor in an i7 Skylake processor is only
about 119 atoms across.

Therefore, one can conclude that it takes technology to build technology. In the past, civilization was
limited to the usage of paper and writing. Calculations done by hand tend to be slow and tedious.

The human mind, comprising of about 86 billion neurons, equals the world's best supercomputers as far as greatness, productivity, and speed, utilizing as meager vitality as a little 20-watt light. Human advancement took a huge number of years to adjust perceptible mind size and design changes.

GREAT SCOPE:)

There is nothing magical about the human brain; it is an extremely sophisticated biological machine (so to say) that is capable of adapting to the environment, capable of creativity, awareness, analyzation, and much more. Compared to cognitively inferior animals like the chimpanzee that only has 7 billion neurons, we exist in a domain different from them. Chimpanzees exist in the construct of their mind and wouldn't be capable of understanding humanity's world. :)

Many human brain–computer interfaces are used for therapeutic purposes to overcome medical or neurological problems, with one example being the deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes used to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. However, even here it’s possible to consider using such technology in ways that would give people abilities that humans don’t normally possess—in other words, human enhancement. In some cases, those who have undergone amputations or suffered spinal injuries due to accidents may be able to regain control of devices via their still-functioning neural signals.

   I would like to add , something ... Autonomous weapons are artificial intelligence systems that are programmed to kill. In the hands of the wrong person, these weapons could easily cause mass casualties. Moreover, an AI arms race could inadvertently lead to an AI war that also results in mass casualties. To avoid being thwarted by the enemy, these weapons would be designed to be extremely difficult to simply “turn off,” so humans could plausibly lose control of such a situation. This risk is one that’s present even with narrow AI, but grows as levels of AI intelligence and autonomy increase.
