Alexander Popoff: “Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. It might also be the last,“ wrote Stephen Hawking et al., in an Independent column in May, 2014. Elon Musk Tweeted in August, 2014, “Hope we‘re not just the biological boot loader for digital super intelligence. Unfortunately, that is increasingly probable.“ A boot loader is a computer program that loads an operating system or some other system software for the computer. “The best answer to the question, ‘Will computers ever be as smart as humans?’ is probably, ‘Yes, but only briefly,’” stated Vernor Vinge, mathematician, computer scientist, and science fiction author.

Creating an sophisticated computer program is one thing, but creating a free thinking AI that has conscious thought I think is still a while away. Still can't come close to the processing power of the brain. All the thing's it's doing second by second would be impossible for current technology no?

Kurzweil seems to think it's gonna happen in 2045. Others think he's off his rocker. The guy is rather smart, though.
