This is probably another reason I was thinking 2029….
A computer passes the Turing test by the last year of the decade (2029), meaning that it is a Strong AI and can think like a human (though the first A.I. is likely to be the equivalent of a very stupid human). This first A.I. is built around a computer simulation of a human brain, which was made possible by previous, nanotech-guided brainscanning.
‘strong AI’ == stupidest person?!! So we can still be very proud to be humans in 2029, but not much long after.
also, first AI built based on the human mind…. I’m anxious to find out if he is correct.
