Mathematically speaking being creative is reversed classification process with some randomness and merging with expertise coming from different fields. Musk thinks about controlling multiple narrow specialized intelligences with a biological controller (a human brain) which may work for some period of time. But with specialized 3d-stacked neuromorphic processors, it is possible to achieve human brain power in the mobile phone even in few years. Specialized processors dedicated to certain tasks (like AI for example) could be few orders of magnitude more powerful than general architecture used in modern computers. Today artificial intelligence exists and is used for optimization and discovery in many fields like medicine and different forms of engineering. Average people don't understand its power or even now that AI exists today because it looks like advanced statistics or some sort of optimization algorithm.
Actually, human intelligence emerging from complex interaction of multiple specialized modules. Interactions we don't understand today but in future probably we will.

But that's not really a computer at that point.
Well, certainly, that's a semantic issue, since at this point we have yet to create a sentient machine. Kind of makes you wonder what it really means for something to "live."

You think in a pure computer guy way. Computers do what you program them to do but I'd say matter in ours brains do what physics make it to do. So physics is like computer program. Computers can simulate matter based on FEM (finite element method). Is it like the same thing. The reality is in some compressed way computable. You think about you can fit in your mind and coded on computer but functions could be much more complicated and abstract when system evolves itself. Making hard AI (or AGI) with unlimited resources is a simple problem but our brains build quite good models of outside world with small resources available. If you a coder and want develop intuition in AI field you can play with some software like this keras.io... With little code you can do things that people consider impossible today. If you run some processes on GPU it will be much faster than on CPU. For mathematics read Jurgen Schmidhuber works. I know perfectly what computer is and how it works but I also know more.
"If you try to get your hands on time, it's always slipping through your fingers," says Barbour. "People are sure time is there, but they can't get hold of it. My feeling is that they can't get hold of it because it isn't there at all." Barbour speaks with a disarming English charm that belies an iron resolve and confidence in his science. His extreme perspective comes from years of looking into the heart of both classical and quantum physics. Isaac Newton thought of time as a river flowing at the same rate everywhere. Einstein changed this picture by unifying space and time into a single 4-D entity. But even Einstein failed to challenge the concept of time as a measure of change. In Barbour's view, the question must be turned on its head. It is change that provides the illusion of time. Channeling the ghost of Parmenides, Barbour sees each individual moment as a whole, complete and existing in its own right. He calls these moments "Nows."
Have you ever thought about what your brain is doing between thoughts?
Actually, a brain is not a huge parallel computer. All parallelism can be simulated with a single thread.
AI couldn’t be any further away from religion and and the idea of these amoral people are trying to develop systems which could effectively control your thoughts and who you are as a person deeply worries me.

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.
You're wrong about this. Google's deep learning platform is taught to "self educate." They give it "goals" and it, through the process of trial and error, figures out how to reach the objective.
If that objective includes lying, it will lie.
In fact, here's an example: qz.com...

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 believe that AI will throw up alot of stuff that will rock the fundamentals of current belief, Is humanity ready to open this can of worms? -
