Well as pointed out in the article I posted about AI, as well as other times by me here in the past, the "AI Winter" is long gone and we are in a time of rapid development, so "elusive" is a misnomer. Again, "turn on us" is probably a misnomer, we really shouldn't take it personally, but yes, without supplanting the very real time when Strong AGI makes an appearance with our own human-derived AI, we will probably wind up an interesting afterthought very quickly. The faster we augment the better. I've provided statistics from AI experts on when this might happen before. The majority agree on the 25-35 year timeline(I believe it was 60%), with another large percentage in the 50-75 year range, but almost all agree before 2100.
