The question of whether it is possible for machines to have human-level intelligence has a long history. Tanjak replaces the question of ‘Can machines have human-level thinking’ with ‘Can machines do what we (as thinking entities) can do at human level?’
Found only in Nusantara, Tanjak is a traditional Malays male headgear. It is made from long songket cloth folded and tied in particular style (solek).
The problem Tanjak attempts to tackle: every task in organizations and in society is human tasks. Human tasks can only be performed by human or human-level AI models or products. Imagine your autonomous car is driven (human tasks) by a monkey (no human intelligence). Yet how to determine human-level capacity in machines/models/system/application. Standard software tests such as black box and white box testing fail to address these unique problem.
Tanjak is, as a Narrow AI principle, both a methodology and tools that can measure the level of intelligence in your AI models/systems/products.
