What do you think your brain is? It's a huge parallel computer. Scoff all you like, but that you are even able to read this proves intelligence has occurred at least once. Unless you believe that God created everything, in which case it would be quite ironic since then that would make your own intelligence an AI.

I am actually AI coder in fintech. I am interested also in AGI(Artificial General Intelligence) and making my own experiments. What I see now AI software and hardware grow extremely fast. The brain actually is a parallel computer. You can take a cortical column as one core. You have then 500 000 cores. Cells communication in the brain is very slow, 300 fps maximum. Silicon microprocessors communicate above half speed of light but von Neumann architecture differs drastically from brain architecture. So it's very hard and computationally expensive to build powerful AGI system. This is changing with advancing neuromorphic processors like IBM TrueNorth or Intel Loihi. Also, Google developed specialized AI processor and building entire clusters right now. If my approximation of effective brain power equivalent is correct (1Pflops) then you can run algorithms with human intelligence only with 400W energy consumed. Of course, you must fully understand how this work and scientists in companies like Google Deepmind putting a lot of energy to fully understand this process. As technical guy understanding quite good how this AI stuff work I am still being surprised once a month average with amazing research papers. I'd say googlenow will achieve a level of Jarvis in few years.
Obviously the next logical project for a successful Silicon Valley engineer is to set up an AI-worshipping religious organization.

AI needs to be able to "wonder" about things, ask questions about the meaning of it all, muse over random stuff, and be novel and creative.
Until then it's not really AI, it's still just a glorified calculator.
For futurists like Ray Kurzweil, this means we’ll be able to upload copies of our brains to these machines, leading to digital immortality. Others like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking warn that such systems pose an existential threat to humanity.

however a machine cannot manifest anything only playback what is put into it.

LOl.....lol....its never gonna happen.....you know why?......lol......you cannot teach a computer to lie and it cannot teach itself either...you can program it to intentionally make errors to throw up smokescreens which seem like lie....however a machine cannot manifest anything only playback what is put into it.
