    Very interesting that China (again) is getting to the front lines. True AI though is pure fiction, and I don’t thing the “ghost in the machine” will ever appear. It might process more data than a human brain(s), but to believe it will ever make truly smart choices is fiction. But I cannot wait to see what will happen when we can compute data as fast as our brains, we might get the computer to mimic the brain in such a brilliant way that we won’t be able to know the difference :)

    The fastest computers already process information faster than the brain. Speed is important to biology but not more than efficiency. The current state of AI is lacking a proper understanding of brain circuitry and how to implement such in a machine. It is not pure fiction because theoretically the algorithms of the brain can be deduced to mathematical form and if that it possible then machine can be made to response more sophisticated to their environment which is in fact what real intelligence is all about.

    I agree. If you take soul/spirit/life (or whatever one choose to call it) out of the equation… a machine can absolutely do the same as a human brain – But I do believe in the soul, and I don’t believe a soul can be constructed in a machine. But we will find out soon enough – awesome :)
