    Do you believe that mankind might achieve the creation of Artificial Intelligence?

    Stephen Hawking believes mankind may bring technology to the point of AI. He thinks it may become a danger to humanity at some point. I think he may have watched the Avengers, Age of Ultron movie recently, or perhaps he has read into the exploration of quantum computers a bit too far. What do you think?

    Who says it has not occurred already? My stove shuts off when I set the timer. Isn't that artificial and was it not intelligent? Even though many will say that is not what AI is I question then certainly we must have a definition that can be lived with. Does AI infer reasoning, creativity, and subsequent actions, which may change with reasoning and creativity?

    Yes, I realize it is a vast field and very complex. That gives ponder to the definition for AI changes as advancements are made for 'machines'. Perhaps at question is when the machine's intelligence exceeds the vision of the visionary. However, that is relational between the machine and a singular visionary while not considering another visionary.

    For instance if I spell something wrong with this post I get a red squiggly line beneath the misspelled word. Was that not artificial, intelligent, and also an action? Can we say that was artificial intelligence? When 'Word' by Microsoft is used it will not only offer red squiggly lines it will offer green lines too, while present opportunities to be more grammatically correct presenting reasoning. Seems the program is smarter than me :-)

    However, maybe I wish it to be incorrect arrived upon through reasoning for a purpose of creativity. Does that mean at that moment the 'machine with its programming' no longer is intelligent? I ponder . . .

      That was a rather philosophical point of view. AI would infer a state of awareness by a manmade machine. It seems a machine would need a soul/spirit to accomplish this feat; unless one invokes meta materials, I do not see how it can be rationalized.

    I think artificial intelligence will help us wade through a lot of the data overload generated by all the smart appliances and "smart grid" implementations we have.

    I don't agree that AI will become God-like, much less bring forth immortality in the form of mind uploading.

      The question is, when do you believe a man-made thing has accomplished AI? Are you referring to it as just something beyond our current 'smart phones', etc.? Can something with AI rationalize like a human?
