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.

I watched Tron in the early 80's (I still love it (not the new one however, what was that???)).

There is a scene where Alan (the guy that writes Tron) mentions that computers will be thinking "soon".

It's now beyond the future that Marty McFly stepped into, and we still have no "thinking" machines.

I personally believe that like time travel, both technologies will never truly exist.

I believe we can mimic intelligence, but I don't believe computers will be able to grasp "though" as we do, not now, not in another 30 years, not ever. Again, this is just based on observations over the past 30 years of living in the industry.

I think the problem is that we underestimate the brain somewhat. I think we are only now beginning to get an idea of what we can actually do.
