...while AI is really more about being better than average human, inexpensively mass-producing and distributing its expertise.

This is kind of why I think artificial intelligence has already been achieved. It was already achieved the first time ELIZA successfully trolled the participants. The rest is just people making excuses to hide away from the fact that most people are stupid (in the best sense of the word) and people just vary in their abilities and their proficiency in those abilities.

Intelligence is not the holy grail here. It is consciousness that we're really chasing. We've had the benefit of having physical bodies, and I don't think artificial consciousness can really proceed unless it has physical bodies with which to evolve along with.
