Artificial Intelligence is moving forwards in leaps and bounds. In a relatively short period of time, we will find ourselves absolutely ensconced, enveloped and overwhelmed by the sheer ubiquitous omnipresence of AI systems and yet not a single one of them will possess a general intelligence in any sense comparable to human minds.
The fascination and positively pathological obsession with recreating human level minds in machines has always left this yawning abyss of distance and difference between what we have achieved and what we hope to achieve. There may be senses in which this resembles an uncrossable chasm, at least under current paradigms of thought.
It remains true to say that at this point in the history of technological civilisation on this planet, the only way to produce a general human-level intelligence is by procreation. Intelligence is not made, it is grown.
