Hardware, Embedded Systems Artificial intelligence is still a long way from delivering the human intelligence in robot form that has long been common in science fiction.

When a computer can drastically improve over time without a programmer. That is when you can call it intelligent IMO.


You need to look at a bigger picture. Nothing improves over time in isolation. Despite the fact that a lot of our intelligent machinery is coded in DNA (biological computer program) we still require massive amounts of input from our parents, school teachers, books, society, etc. All these external factors continually program our brains over many years. Otherwise, how do you tell the difference between good and evil, or courage and cowardice?

Complex AI is definitely possible, but will need a lot of research, development and evolution before it can overtake human intelligence.
