Goertzel thinks superhuman AI is only 10 years away

April 29, 2007

My suggestion is that even if it’s true that current computers are much less powerful than the human brain, this isn’t necessarily an obstacle to creating powerful AGI on current computers using fundamentally non-brain-like architectures. What one needs is “simply” a non-brain-like AGI design specifically tailored to take advantage of the strengths of current computer architectures.

A bit overzealous if you ask me, but it’s a very thoughtful essay besides.
