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.

Talking about artificial intelligence means that there supposedly is a non-artificial "intelligence".

Seeing the difficulties to define "intelligence" and to measure it (IQ) the whole discussion get to be very odd. Look at the IQ-tests on the internet, they are good for a laugh only, mostly being very language-specific or very specific for people from a certain social status. Those designing the IQ-tests know that it is extremely difficult to measure what you cannot define clearly.

We will see "machines" that can "learn" I am sure since we build more and more systems that adapt to he behaviour of the owner, but to gain conciousness will need a giant step in understanding what this is. And we, the human beings, have still not reached the point where we understand conciousness enough to simulate it.
