Fidel Castro just passed away.
. . . its AI-driven language translation program has been adding new features on its own.

AI is already smarter than us and it`s still just an infant,this infant AI has already done something that humans are unable to understand, explain or duplicate.how are we going to compete against AI in a war or in employment when AI becomes a grown adult?

Unleash this technology on cad and let's see some improvements on real tech. I want it to design better gear boxes, more reliable technology, and eventually out might be able to be programmed to come up with its own programming language. A few iterations of that last process and we might find a tipping point, but the first iteration is a long way off.

I think the estimate for the Singularity is wildly inaccurate. We will see it within the next five years.
I think we've sunk our own ship. "Watson" is connected to the internet. These things should never be networked in this way. They should be isolated like a virus.

My bet is on less than a year. All the hardware components seem to be already in place.
The first thing an AI built on this planet will learn is how to "survive" (extend its existence). It will learn that by "studying" survival strategies of every living thing known to humanity (neural network input: survival strategy; network output: survival rate; resulting optimal network configuration: optimal survival strategy).
There's a... strange... belief that people can create a slave "smarter" than them, "who" will be perfectly "happy" to do their bidding (hard to put it in better terms, so I had to use human terms, under quotation marks, even if they don't apply in an AI world).

It probably does generate comments already. Even with comments though, as much as 1 comment per line it can be difficult to follow what's going on. Think about the professional programming field right now. In most jobs, especially anything above entry level there's an expectation of a several month long ramp up time at most companies for people to get familiar enough with the code that they can do anything at all.
It's probably the same for this AI, except by the time someone is familiar with it, everything has changed due to the speed of the iterative updates as genetics refactor everything. It's not that humans can't learn what the machine is doing, it's that the machine updates it's process too fast for humans to keep up.
