The Japanese like their robots too, but theirs are cuter. None of this advances AI an inch.
We will be using fossil fuels in 20 years. I guarantee it.
AI is advancing even if it's slowly. I remember in the 90's when people were ready to give up on speech recognition. Now we have Siri and Google speak. I also remember people saying that computers would never go beyond brute force computation, but look there's Watson using adaptive algorithms to win Jeopardy.
When humans develop AI, it won't be like HAL9000 or Data. It'll probably be like an advance app that runs in the background.
