Re: Has this guy really cracked AI?

That's true -- existing AIs tend to be very specialised. The average person is a generalist who can rapidly learn and adapt. It probably doesn't matter if AIs never emulate human thought -- to quote Edsger Dijkstra: "The question of whether a machine can think is no more interesting than the question of whether or not a submarine can swim."
