    There is way more to intelligent thought than mimicry.

    You can teach a parot to give speaches but that doesnt make it possible for a parrot to run the country. Obama is proof.

    A chip using the pathways of the human mind is an amazing feat but its still a piece of plastic and metal.

    Computer programs cannot go from 1 to 2 to 3 and arrive at the colour blue then get to 4. While as interesting as artificial intelligence is its about as liekly to happen as a space alien showing up on the white house lawn and endorsing obama for 2012...

    Be careful what you wish for. :D

    Artificial intelligence will happen, eventually. Machines will have to be able to learn without direct programming and that hasn't happened yet.

    Most intelligence I come across is artificial, this does not concern me.

    Malformed binary, binary is supposed to be divisible by 8.
