Este trabajo explora una serie de reflexiones sobre el significado de la inteligencia en la neurociencia y la informática. El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar una definición comprensible que se ajuste a nuestro entorno contemporáneo de inteligencia artificial. Se analiza la relación entre la inteligencia y la neurociencia y presento la teoría de los mil cerebros de Hawkins, un enfoque para mostrar qué es un agente inteligente según la neurociencia. Aquí, el principal resultado se basa en la comprobación de que la inteligencia sólo es posible en el neocórtex. De acuerdo con este resultado, el estudio hace un segundo análisis crítico con el objetivo de demostrar por qué no existe la inteligencia artificial en la actualidad. La metodología de investigación de este ensayo se basa en las teorías existentes sobre la inteligencia artificial, centradas en la informática y la neurociencia.
